2004 CNNP 7542 Green Pu-erh Tea Cake
n authentic CNNP (China National Native Produce and Animal By-products Imp. And Exp. Corp.) product.
7542 recipe is for the most famous raw Puerh with the largest production base that people take it as the benchmark for a green Pu-erh tea. It was not intended to be a premium class product considering its raw material blends, yet it was ranked at the top of the class and sold at a premium all the time. It is proven.
The tea liquor is a light red/orange color – a sign of good aging. The soup is clear and it carries a smoke flavor. Sufficed to say, after 6 years of aging, its characters was tamed somewhat. It is no longer bitter but starts to show a softer and lovely texture with an attractive flavor. The saliva keeps on coming after drinking it, and the color of the tea liquor is very even brew after brew. There is a malty and hearty feeling in the taste. The liquor, just like the body surface, is extremely clean and pleasant looking. Plum and dried fruit kind of aroma has been developed noticeably in the aftertaste. A very top choice for more aging to improve mellowness and complexity.Green Pu-erh Tea Cake 357g/12.6 ounces Vintage 2004 Premium class Loose tea leaves Caffeine: Moderate
