Description

March 9th, 2021

I purchased these in November, 2016, and have stored them in my eleventh-floor warehouse ever since! These have been stored in the same carton as the 2010 JiaJis I also offer (and both were purchased from the same large-volume Kunming wholesaler).

Dry, these tuos smell much less smokey than the 2004s and 2010s do at this time. It appears the JiaJis go through phases and release smokey aromas at different times as they age. These are remarkably smoke-free at this time.

In the cup, I get barley notes up front, which is a classic Xiaguan sheng flavor, as well as the distinctive wildflower character from Xiaguan's Dali plantation material. This tea is instantly calming like the 2004 JiaJi, but since I had breakfast before testing this tea, the effect isn't quite as intense or immediate. I notice the body warming effect much later in the session (and I believe this warming effect from tea is primarily due to caffeine).

There is some chenpi in the aftertaste in the first infusion, which is welcome and makes for a more interesting cup. This is a nice, smooth tea now and it needs to be pushed hard to get astringency and bitterness from the material. I really enjoy the barley-like character from this tea and it makes it sufficiently different from the 2004 tuo I tried yesterday that I'm not at all bored to drink more JiaJi today. The fact the 2004 is fresh in my mind also made for a very interesting comparison a day later.

The liquor is also quite thick in the third infusion. I push hard and get some astringency and bitterness at the bottom of the pitcher as it cools, but both are very tolerable. 

This is a great classic recipe and aged quite far along now. This tea will be even better in a few years, but I don't expect these to stick around long!
