2007 Yang Qing Hao – Qizhong

Another sample from Origintea, the 2007 Qizhong from Yang Qing Hao.

YQG Qizhong

A dry piece of the YQH puer tea

The Qizhong is a balancing act of soft, smooth entry and thick lingering body.

Most lightweight teas are agile and soft. Their counterpart heavyweights are strong and intense. The Qizhong is riding the line in between the two, with an emphasis of strength.

It is a nimble heavyweight. Both aggressive and graceful at the same time.

The golden soup of the Qizhong

The Qizhong is durable. Stamina abound, it became clear that the first four rounds were merely a warm up. The leaves kept giving late into the bout.

The retail price around $270 for a 400g cake, this is a good value for this quality of aged gushu puer. Another fine tea from Origin.

    Good old Yangqinghao – they always seem so dependable. Perhaps it’s time for me to find my wallet. :)

      I definitely debated cracking my wallet open for this cake. Very good quality tea. The price tag is about right for the level of tea
