This is the first my first dry storage aged sheng puerh tea that I’ve received a sample of. My initial impression is that the color is around the same of the wet storage ones but a little lighter. The taste is a bit different as it has still has the freshness of the younger tea but the harshness has given way to a more mellow tea. Overall an enjoyable tea and I am grateful for the free sample as it made me realize that when it comes to buying aged sheng that if it is not wet stored then it is not worth my money as I enjoy wet a lot more than dry.
1998 CNNP 7542 Pu-erh Tea Cake
A clean, dry storaged CNNP green tea cake, maked with 7542 on its tong wrapper. As you know 7542 is the recipe for a classic/proven blend in the past.
This tea is already showing fine aging with a reddish liquor. Unlike other semi-aged tea, this tea cake has never placed into a wet storage, so it kept its nice aroma and the sharp characteristics of a raw/green Pu-erh.
