1997 Orange Mark Small Zhong Qi Tse Beeng - Tea Review - I

Zhou Yu: I brewed 3 grams of this tea in 150 ml of water for five minutes. The first steeping, I was very impressed. I couldn't wait for the second, but then found myself incredibly disappointed. All of the wonderful yun and flavor had become weak and stale. l tried. it again later with the same result.

Lu Li Zhen: I liked the aroma and flavor of this tea both. The yun was also very nice. I enjoyed this tea. I wouldn't say it was great, but I couldn't find anything to fault it with.

Chen Zhi Tong: The aroma of the steeping leaves was fresh, sweet and elegant. I was impressed as soon as the water was poured. It tasted rich, smooth and had an abundant yun. I thought this was a very good tea.

Chen Gan Bang: I found that this tea wasn't very fragrant. I smelled wild trees and forests when I leaned into the gaiwan. The liquor was a deep red color that was obviously rich. It did indeed taste rich with a strong bitterness. However, the bitterness transformed nicely into sweetness (hui tian). I think it still needs to age for some time and it may become much better. I would enjoy evaluating this tea again at a future date.

He Jing Cheng: The liquor of this tea was rough and bitter. The leaves were very nice, complete and mature. It had nice patience. I didn't like the way it transformed in the mouth, though. The bitterness seemed to linger a bit too long. I ranked it as 12.
