I had blogged about this tea in 2016 (link). This tea was sold by Taetea (aka Dayi) without wrappers to Taiwan but was accidentally shipped to the Malaysian distributor instead. This tea is estimated to be produced in 2003.
I liked this tea and had bought quite a fair bit of this tea before it was sold out.
Already abut 20 years old, the tea remained very bold and strong. Taste and aroma from the initial infusions are peppery, camphor, peaty with a long sweet aftertaste. This taste profile is quite pronounced and the tea can brew up to more than a dozen strong brews.
Old well stored dayi tea are highly sought after by Chinese tea drinkers around the world. Such tea also commands a high price and are really hard to come by.
I will be starting by tea travels in June and I look forward to share my tea adventures with my readers.
