I orderd from "chawangshop", and asked the owner about this DHP bing. He said it's not the best grade of leaves but tastes really good and sells pretty well. I orderd a few other things (mainly samples) and he said he would throw one in for me since I showed interest. It'll take a few weeks to get here, but I'll let the forum know what it's like.
I've seen those green tea bings too. I don't think I'd spend a wooden nicke on one, but I'll taste almost any tea if it's free and I don't have to make the "effort" to steep it. -Eric
Didn't think I ordered EMS shipping, guess I did, but the DHP bing already arrived. It's more than I expected. Although highly compressed with mediocre leaf quality, it brews an incredibly great tasting tea! It's said to compressed this year (2011) with leaves from 2005 that are heavily roasted, but the liquid and the taste feel like it's more medium roasted, perhaps it's the compression it went through? Dispite it's amazing taste and absence of astringency, the aftertaste is almost non existent... when brewed in a gaiwan. I do not have a good YiXing for Wuyishan wulongs, but I do have a Japanese clay teapot made of "raw Shigaraki" clay that works wonders on wuyishan wulongs, most of them anyway. And when this DHP Bing was steeped in my Shigaraki clay teapot, I encountered amazing aftertaste that was "retro-nasal" as well! I wish I had a goo yixing for YanCha. Soon perhaps I will get one from Daniel. Anyway, I would suggest at least trying this DHP bing, it's much more than a novelty, it's a true tea. And that's more than I can say for other compressed wulong bings. I've had very bad compressed wulongs, in my opinion they ARE mainly novelties, except for the ones that are made well. And this one is made well, in my opinion. Now I HAVE had better DHP than this by far, but as a bing it's great to show off and I think it's a great price for 100g, $7.30 for a single 100g bing. Don't try their other wulongs, not very good. I haven't tried any of their puer samples they gave me, but the fuzhuan samples are some of the better ones I've had.
