5 of 5 Mellowing Cha Qi July 8, 2011
Reviewer: L. Sun from Portland, OR United States  
I too agree that although noticeable in the first two brews or so, the wet storage taste is not overwhelming.  This tea is definitely worth trying and has a very pleasant Qi that will be able to mellow/bliss you out after a long stressful day.

4 of 5 wet but not too much June 6, 2011
Reviewer: Geoffrey from san francisco, CA United States  
While i noticed some initial "wet storage flavor" in the first few brews, it wasn't overwhelming and certainly not anything to be afraid of. Unlike the previous reviewer, i suggest smelling the brewed leaves throughout the session to evaluate it's prior storage conditions. Allowing the broken pieces to air out prior to brewing will also help to rid it of any unpleasantness if your nervous about it. I found this one to have an interesting aroma possibly of longan fruit.

4 of 5 a very promising ageing pu,but wet stored for sure March 25, 2011
Reviewer: Ben from Maine  
I will give this pu a 4, knowing very well that the wet storage flavors would put a lot of people off.  You definitely want to toss the rinse with this one, and I do not recommend smelling the leaves until a second, or maybe even third rinse.  I should also mention that this pu has some golden flowers, something which I find very exciting, but might gross other people out.  By the third brew, I was left with a very yummy, complex tea with an excellent qi.  Some wet storage flavors remained, but they didn't bother me at all by brew four or so, and I lost track of how many brews I made.  Blissful cha qi, excellent flavor, but a tea that probably still needs time to dry out, even if you are a fan of wet stored pu.
