2006 Kunming Guyi "Yubang Wild Tree" raw bingcha



From the description on TuochaTea.com, the Kunming Guyi factory started in 2004 and "Yubang" is their trademark. So, new factory, let's see what they're made of.

I used boiling water like on all of my puerh, with a 15 second rinse, and infusions of 20s, 25s, 30s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 80s, and 100s.

Throughout all of the infusions I get a fruity smell off of the wet leaves, like dried apricots. The flavor of the liquor gives me a leather or suede base taste, with the dried apricot on top. While this tea was pleasant, it was a bit unidimensional. It tasted the same from start to finish where it died around the 7th or 8th infusion. For $12 before shipping, I think I might pick up a couple to store, but if all else fails it's drinkable now. I think I'll get their "Yubang Ancient Tree" next time to try.
