I just tried the 1997 sample of Xizhihao puerh from Hou De. It is really not bad, and better than I remember from my metting with Phyll and Bearsbearsbears in LA. That time, the tea tasted a bit flat and boring, but this time, it’s much better, spicy, minty, woody, and deep. I htink the water was not hot enough last time, and we didn’t put in enough leaves.

I am going to bring this, and other samples of puerh, back to HK with me, and bring it to my favourite teahouse to see what the salesperson there says about it. I know her pretty well and she’s pretty willing to share her knowledge. More reports on HK teahouses in a week’s time.
