This tea is from David Lee Hoffman of ThePhoenixCollection. he lists it as late 80's early 90's but He told me it is from around 92 as thats the year he purchased. It has been in his storage in California since then. It is a dry storage as you can tell from the pics. Only sold as a full tong with no wrappers or neifei.
The leaves break away with no problem and are nice and hairy.
Overall I enjoy this tea. It has a very relaxing chi and gave me a lot of brews thru the entire day. The price of the tong is also extra good at $125 a tong but Hoffman told me that every tong he has opened of this tea has been different so giving a low price. I think I got a good one. A good everyday sheng with age.
