Description:

dense, rich, bitter-sweet, fruity aroma, full body floods the whole mouth and gives a feeling of oily brew, later steeps taste bitter-sweetish leaving a nice feeling in a mouth, the tea is a great premise for aging, strong, tight pressing has already started up the fermentation

this spring hand-pressing of pu-erh cakes was done in a very skilled manufacture in Yiwu, is more tight than previous years, there is more work for me when taking apart the tea leaves for samples, but for long term storage the tight pressing will allow keep longer the aromas, the tea leaves won't dry that much, during this tighter pressing the man standing on the stone press needs twice as much time to have the leaves trample down

The tea was part of Sheng 2013 Blind Tasting Set

The taste of tea is round. The first infusion has a pleasant sweet flavor with a hint of bitterness in aftertaste. The second infusion is full and sweet, but the sweetness turns into a distinctive bitterness. Again, dryness on the tongue. The cold brew is dominated just by bitterness. The bitterness is smaller in further infusions, but it is still present. Tea preserves its flavor and fullness even in further brews. Tea has a kick compared to sample No. 6 (Manzhuan). Infusion’s color is distinctly yellow.

Quotes

„Poor control in fermentation/oxidation process can result in bad ripened pu'er, characterized by badly decomposed leaves and an aroma and texture reminiscent of compost.“
