2014 Dayi Chuan Shi (2014 大益传世 改制十年 承制御启 357g 生饼)
2014 Dayi Chuan Shi is a commemorative cake to mark the 10th year of its factory restructuring. It is said to contain raw material of 6–10 years along with new material. This is believable as the brew color is darker shade of yellow. The leaves are also in several shades.
The tea is smoky with slight bitterness and some astringency. Amid the smoke, there is fragrance of honey sweetness. This tea is strong and has quite good body. All factors in, it’s quite a balanced tea in terms of taste and fragrance.
Current price is expensive but I’m sure this is age into a gem ;)
