For aging

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

This is a bland of two teas from two villages in Menghai area. Material is coming from an old tea trees 60-120 year old. The cake is well processed.

Dry tea smells heavily fresh. Odour of wet leaves is deeply flower-sweet.

Infusion is bold, herbal, strong, bitter. Nothing uneasy in the taste, but also nothing distinctive. But the energy, on the other side, is quite distinctive and warming-up. This strong energy will make you sweat.

I can spot a little mushroom aftertaste in later infusions. Very long aftertaste.

I have over-steeped the 8th brew and it is still very bitter. Stamina is good, though.

This tea, in my opinion, is not suitable to drink now. You can find far more pleasant young shengs in 2015 ChawangPu Collection (Bada, Mengsong, Hekai). The taste of this tea is not distinctive, but judging by energy it quite interesting. Really outstanding chaqi. It will be though more suitable for long term aging. The price is favourable $18 for 200g cake (2015).

Quotes - Pu-erh


„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. “

Quotes

„Depending on the desired product and speed, from quickest and tightest to slowest and loosest, pressing can be done by a large heavy stone, carved into the shape of a short cylinder with a handle, simply weighs a bag of tea down onto a wooden board. The tension from the bag and the weight of the stone together give the tea its rounded and sometimes non-uniformed edge. Due to the manual labor involved, this method of pressing is often referred to as: "hand" or "stone-pressing", and is how many artisanal pu'er bǐng are still manufactured.“
