1997 CNNP Big Red Mark

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

It is already quite matured, wet stored tea. First it was stored in Hong Kong then in Malaysia. Dry tea has a fairly strong earthy aroma. The first infusion dominates by earthiness and considerable bitterness. Since the second infusion the earthiness gradually subsides and bitterness decreases. The taste of infusion consists of earthiness / maturity with a pleasant bitterness and nutty(?) aroma. The color of brew is beautifully dark red. The best infusions were 3rd, 4th and 5th, in about the 9th infusion the tea begins to fade. The tea has a lot of energy and worms you up nicely. I will rather wash the tea for 2 times for the next time. Tea is certainly good. It was nice tea time, although it is not exactly my cup of tea. Maybe it was too wet stored for me or I simply have not yet developed the taste for such archival teas to fully appreciate it. Anyway, I highly recommend at least trying.

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Bĭng: The tea cake itself. Tea cakes or other compressed pu'er can be made up of two or more grades of tea, typically with higher grade leaves on the outside of the cake and lower grades or broken leaves in the center. This is done to improve the appearance of the tea cake and improve its sale. Predicting the grade of tea used on the inside takes some effort and experience in selection. However, the area in and around the dimple of the tea cake can sometimes reveal the quality of the inner leaves.“

„Wo Dui - this new process produced a finished product in a manner of months that many thought tasted similar to teas aged naturally for 10–15 years and so this period saw a demand-driven boom in the production of Hei Cha by the artificial ripening method. “
