I have not tried this yet so I am cheating as this is not really a tasting note HOWEVER
I have added this to my cupboard because I do believe this is what I purchased at an Asian shop in St. Louis.
The Tea Company I know is correct.
The packaging looks identical.
HOWEVER I find no DATE on mine.
If anyone has advice on how to find the date to be sure this is in fact what I have please let me know.
Otherwise I have to assume this is it since it looks right and is the only one like this I find here under this company.
Then again I suppose the company could have others LIKE it that are not yet added.
Ugggg
I am a bit “iffy” about trying it.
The gunpowder green I got from this shop is very nice but with Puerh I tend to be skeptical!
Especially since I got a 350g in a nice box (reminds me of fireworks) for only 6.49!!

That picture shows a CNNP wrapper, not a Menghai Dayi wrapper. There are alot of counterfeit teas. $6.49 for a 357 gram beeng likely means a poor tea, labeled with a fake wrapper. They are everywhere in China.

I feared that. The marking in the middle – The green – its not centered properly as if it was printed cheaply. Bummer. It smells pretty decent but who knows what the heck is in it! LOL

Azzrian

And thank you Garret!

Garret

no, thank you!!!! :) I had a couple come in here once that had been sold a cake for over $100. They had had a good experience buying it, so I never told them that they had been swindled. You couldn’t have paid me to drink that tea. They weren’t going to drink it… for them it was just a decoration with a good story behind it.

Aweee well you can’t put a price on a great experience or a good story. :)

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
