- Pure ancient tree Yiwu Guoyoulin (protected state forest)
- Classic Yiwu sweetness, aftertaste and Qi
- Extremely pure, clean and bright (from unmanaged ancient trees)
- Thanks to collector generosity, priced quite a bit lower even than fresh harvest Tong Qing He
While BHYJ of this age often use very high quality pure ancient tree material, the processing of many cakes makes them bit too weak and bland. Not so for this tea, it’s got the the classic intense Yiwu strength, sweetness, minerality and character well preserved despite the age.
With its brothers 2014 BHYJ Xiang Chun Lin and 2014 BHYJ Bo He Tang this cake forms another perfect example of aged clean yiwu ancient tree, super easy and comfortable to drink and yet with a lot of depth. While the other 2 are more unique, this cake is very much the classic Yiwu taste turned to the max, can be used as a reference for Yiwu Guoyoulin taste and Qi (which is deep and comfortable), there’s a good reason Tong Qing He is one of the most desirable Yiwu guoyoulin gardens.
Same great storage (something between natural and dry taiwanese storage, very clean) as all of our other BHYJ cakes, enhances depth while preserving the complex aromas and unique character of the tea. The beginner may appreciate this, the expert may really understand the “soft strength” depth of this tea.
380g cakes, a few 1/4 slices (approx. 85-90g) available.

I’d describe this sheng with two words: a noble one.

Magical tea ! Instant and ‘intense’ calming efect, I was transported to the present moment in a flash. Second steeping I felt being washed over like laying in the sea by the beach. And after that I had very pleasant visuals of white flowers budding in me. Found flowery, fruity and sweet notes in it. Truly pure and bright.

First thing that comes to my mind, it has a signature note in the development and the finish, that’s rather a feeling than a specific taste. I can find it here and there in some teas of similar level. It is not the origin, rather has something to do with the purity of the material, perhaps. Very calming and comforting one.
