I am brewing this in my Yixing with generous leaf. It is very energizing. The flavor is powerful and assertive. I received this today along with 4 other Sheng to sample and hopefully be able to get to know this type of Pu’erh. One thing that I must note is that there is an energy to these Sheng. A life force. Not a caffeine energy. The liquor is a dark amber orange. And for whatever reason still, I have a mental block when it come to trying to describe the flavor of Sheng. They truly are in a class by themselves….
2007 Menghai 7532 Raw Pu'erh Cake
Classic recipe from Menghai, but the first production of 2007 701. The highest grade material is always used for the first batch productions and is highly sought after by collectors. Don’t be confused this cake does not represent raw Pu’erh tea produced in 2007, rather it is a blend of premium Menghai area raw material from 2006. 7532 recipe is one of the highest grade recipes used to compose raw tea cakes. The flavor is strong and pungent but that will mellow with age and develop more complex and subtle flavors. Whether drinking young or old this Pu’erh will surely delight. This a classic and a must-have for any Pu’erh collection.
