My samples from yunnansourcing.us finally came in today. Usually Scott is quite good at sending out orders in a timely manor, but apparently I ordered at a bad time and it was not able to ship until last week. Anyway, they are here now, and I am excited (as I always am with new tea).
I got 25g of 2009 Menghai 7542 901 (raw), 2008 Menghai "Da Yi Hong" (ripe), 2007 Mengku "Mu Ye Chun" 001 (raw), and 2011 Yunnan Sourcing "Man Tang Hong Number 2" (ripe). I'll be trying these out over the next few days and hopefully share some of my thoughts here. Depending how much I like them, I'm hoping to end up with one or two full cakes after tasting all four. I also have a few Black Fridays teas somewhere in the mail, and should be here any day.
Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving!
