1960s WangZi loose leaf sheng puerh
This 1960’s loose leaf sheng puerh is a good example of a nicely aged tea. The liquor is thick and smooth with hints of Chinese dates.
As with almost all loose leaf puerhs of this era, it has been through some traditionally humid storage for some of its years, but more recently has been in fairly dry conditions, allowing the flavour of the storage to mellow and the aged tea flavour to come through.
The chaqi, while not mindblowing, is nice, strong and building throughout the session.
Overall, the quality cannot compare to the bings of the 60’s, but this tea allows one to taste and get a feel for teas of this era without paying thousands of dollars for the experience. I would be happy to drink this regularly.
