Ma Hei 2015 Spring

MaHei 麻黑 neighbors LuoShuiDong, and is one of the most famous villages in Yiwu, where artisan pu'er cakes are still produced entirely by hand, and stone pressed, according to traditional methods. Mahei's deep-rooted, centuries-old tea bushes produce a thick mouthfeel with classic Yiwu sweetness and elegant floral fragrance. This tea has a lot of substance which makes it a good ager but it needs to be handled right. A 1 minute infusion gives off intense twig + bark tannins, wood spice and some of the sour bitterness of grape skin and seeds, with a hint of dried apricot and a citric tang on the finish. Short 10-20 second infusions produce silky smooth and thick tea, with fantastic floral aroma, and great endurance. So be gentle!

Review by tenoh27
Tea flavour and aroma descriptions are not a forte of mine - so will be eschewing that here -but I have truly enjoyed this tea, even after more than 10th steepings.

Bitterness and astringency were more pronounced by the end, when steeping time increased, but of particular note was the throat feeling in the first few steeps. A marvellous tea I will be getting more of. (Posted on 11/25/15)
