    Very educative, especially since i was able to compare ot with the 2006 CGHT Chawang (Autmun), and the 2021 CYH Chawangshu, the parallels are obvious.

    CGHT had the most oily mouthfeel, the Gold Mark (probably) the most overall Performance, yet i enjoyed the Chwangshu the most, due to more interesting flavour.

    Not sure if Chawangshu or Gold Marl is superior, have to try that again.

    There’s depth from the first taste – the rinse has pomegranate-like sweet/ acid balance, mouthwatering, chalky mouthfeel.

    The balance changes from the first proper steep onwards, even if the low PH is evident throughout. Pot aromas are fruity sweet and somewhat aromatic, as they are in the empty bowl, though not exactly perfumed.

    There’s a seriously good thickness to the tea soup and no bitterness. It’s the opposite of returning sweetness, immediately sweet with a mouthwatering sensation ‘returning’.

    Heavy eyelids and a sensation of slowing down. Peaceful Qi!

    The sense of volume is palpable. This isn’t about taste or aroma – this tea is all about texture and feel.

    It’s a seriously good tea and delivers an immersive session. Highly recommended.

    A very kind friend gave me a sample of this and I tried it today.
    It tasted and felt like everything Paolo said in his intro.
    I had a challenging morning but found myself getting channelled and focused by cup 2. That was the point I shut my laptop down and took time to truly savour this. How many other chunks of this are being carefully hoarded, now it’s no longer available?

    This is one of my favorite teas! It’s grounding and heart opening. I love the aroma and taste.
