Puerhshop.com (review) from the Year of Green Tasting Kit (store link).
Year of Green review: 2006 Arbor tuo, 2004 CNNP Old Tree, 2007 Mengsa,
2007 Old Banzhang, 2007 Menghai Crab.

who am i ?             i’m very dry…        and thirsty…         30s                                                    30s

…                          40s                         1m                     1m…                                          …     le fin

Method: hotten wasser @ 200F…

30s: wash thrown via sink.
30s: watery kinda yunnan green tea taste, but this is 1 week later and doesn’t seem as much yunnan as i had it 1 week ago…
30s: still watery (not enough leaf?) but not much astringency/tannin = not harsh…
there’s some interesting flavors in here, can’t describe other than something plant? vegetable?
definitely not as smoky sensation as 1st time i opened it…
40s: same maybe more intense flavors, still not much astringency
1m: same, getting some sweet in the aftertaste (drink, wait 1-2min, you’ll feel it on the tongue)
1m: same

Overall: the 2006 Arbor tuocha is next, but sofar the Mengsa is the only one i like from the Year of green. Even tho the flavor is not as i tasted it the 1st time, this one is a maybe for me.
