After a double rinse and dumping the first 2 infusions in the hopes that the later ones would be better I gave up on this tea when the 3rd infusion was not any better. Way too smoky and reminds me a lot more of really bad green tea than raw puerh.
2008 Changtai Bingcha Green Pu-erh Cake Tea (昌泰饼茶)
Back in 2005, Changtai Tea Group was in its heydays. It was promoted as a premium tea company by a number of Hongkong and Taiwan merchants.
This tea cake is the second 2008 product we found for good and old Changtai Tea Factory. It shows a faster aging progress with its thick, rosy soup. Once again, this tea got its smokeness, which is an issue with some tea drinkers.
