Just as I coincidentally happened to already drinking EoT’s mengsong red when I checked TeaDB yesterday, I just happened to be sipping some yancha when I opened the site up to see this inbetweenesode. Go figure!
I feel it’s common, from my experience, that puerh-heads will also like some yancha on the side.
Thanks for the review, James. I was looking at some Sea Dyke (boxed & tinned) several days ago in one of our local Chinatowns.
Hope you shed the cold asap!
Sea dyke is also a good, cheap option for anyone interested in aging yancha. It obviously won’t turn into something magical, but it does get very smooth and tastey after 20 years. Plenty of dark fruit notes. Sampletea.com has some 90’s sea dyke that’s worth checking out
where’d you find that awesome cup?
