Well this is one of those “special” pu erhs that lives up to its reputation. This tea brews dark as in a heavy fermented tea and exhibits the characteristics of a much older shou. It has a touch of dryness with a hint of woodiness that is followed by a sweet caramel molasses note. it has a hint of a peach taste at the very end that really works in this tea. I was really afraid to try this one and give notes on it as I was afraid it would be further than my simple notes to elaborate on it. All in all, well worth the cost. multiple flavor notes and very reminiscent of some small ultra high grade teas offered by some sellers we have in the US. If I hadn’t known it was a big factory production I would have argued adamantly that this was a small production. It will get a top rating as this one has all the things I like in a shou. I am really glad I bought 2 of these.

mrmopar Terri I got it sourced from a seller on Aliexpress. Here is a link to it http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/GRANDNESS-Revolution-of-1911-Anniversary-2011yr-Menghai-Dayi-RIPE-Pu-Erh-Tea-100-Genuine-Quality/215539_756620734.html. There are sellers that are cheaper than this but you have to watch as there are lots of fake Dayi products over there. Dayi is pretty consistent on the wrapping and tagging of their cakes. If you see one cheaper send me a link before you get it and I will hopefully know its real before you commit to purchasing it. The link is for a genuine cake.

That’s because you are awesome! Of course, I’m not suppose to be buying any tea right now… :)

I wont tell if you get one! I had to sneak my last order in……

Can you confirm the link? When I click on it, the URL you show appears in the browser’s address bar for a brief second then I get redirected to a URL that is almost the same, except the “yr” is missing after “2011”. It’s possible the seller simply updated the page and created the redirect themselves, but I’d like to be sure before committing to buy. Thanks!

Hello folks,
mrmopar, I am tempted to purchase this based on your recommendation, and the other great reviews. I followed the link above and it looks like the cake is available. Can you confirm that this is the seller you’ve used? Looks like Grandness?

I also want to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your wonderful and detailed tea tasting notes! I find them helpful as I learn more about shu.

Rdeitz, I can’t take a whole lot of credit for anything. I am still learning and hope to always do so. Lots of people here helped me along when I first joined and I am trying to continue the tradition just with puerh! Just messaged you a link.
