amazed at the consistency

Review by Doug F (from Steepster)
Ineffable rock-candy sweetness with notes of corn and hay, the broth generously lubricates the mouth and is quite persistent in the throat. I’m really amazed at the consistency of this tea that steep to steep pumps out consistently sweet, clean, full-bodied mouth-watering liquor with no ebb in flavor and no bitterness. People talk about price per gram of tea, but maybe there should be a price-per-excellent-infusion category in which the Guang Feng Zhai would challenge for supremacy. (Posted on 10/7/15)

Consistent and balanced

Review by KL Wong
Eugene gifted me a sample of this cake from my recent purchase. Taking a deep breath at the opening of the sample pack, I can smell sweet and slightly floral notes. I know I'm in a for a great session.

The tea is still bright yellow. At steeping 4-6, I feel my cheeks warm up and my eyes relax. Only slight astringency and bitterness. Does not give you a bang in your mouth but softness is not meekness. Some tea dust can be seen suspended in liquor; which is a good thing to indicate the tea is not watery. Towards the end, there is slight smoothness on the surface of tongue that I normally associate with Taiwanese High Mountain tea.

Overall I'm very impressed that it's gone 12 steepings at the recommended steeping instructions using a gaiwan. Could have been more if I was patient enough.
