2005 Songpin Hao Pu-erh Tea Cake (宋聘号普洱熟饼)

This Songpin Hao pu-erh cake was commissioned by a Hongkong tea company. It was the works of Mr. W.X. Bei, a famous tea master employeed by CNNP for decades. He was in charge of most CNNP 1998 – 2003 productions.

You might find many new Songpin tea cakes nowadays, this one stands above the ground for its quality.

It brews a Bergundy alike liquor with a creamy, mellow taste, very smooth and a sweet aftertaste.

I ordered a sample of this one with my last order from puerhshop. It is a fairly light shu, burgundy colored. It has some interesting flavors. It has a dryness that reminds me of a dry red wine. It has some peppery and cherry notes. If you’re wondering if shus can really taste like that, this is the most pronounced I’ve had with these flavors. Not one of my favorites, but a fun one to try. I don’t think i will drink it again, though.

I get the black pepper notes also with some shou.

I tried this twice so far in my gaiwan and was not impressed. The first time I used my normal starting point for an unknown shu of 6 grams to 100 ml water. The resulting tea had no off-flavors, but was rather mild. Two steeps in the middle of the 13 steep session rated medium body and my notes show “nice steep”, the remainder I rated decent, OK or just fair. I did pick up combinations of slight tastes of mushrooms, pepper, sweetness, minerals and citrus in these mild cups.

For the second session I increased the leaf to 8 grams. Although the cup was a little stronger, notes of earth (dirt) came out in all but two of the steeps. I gave up on steep seven when the earth taste did not go away.

I’m glad I only purchased a sample instead of a whole cake. Perhaps others will have a different experience, especially if they prefer a mild shu, but I made a note to not buy this again.
