From The Essence of Tea

This is an interesting tea – I tasted it around a year ago and was unsure whether to stock it on the web store. The initial taste wasn’t special, but I loved the chaqi of this tea. At the time I decided not to buy more, but to buy one cake for myself and drink it a few more times and make up my mind later. I bought a cake, put it away amongst the other cakes in my collection and forgot about it amongst the travelling and moving I’ve done in the past year.

I rediscovered this tea recently and brewed it up again to see how it was. The taste, as I remembered, wasn’t special in the beginning – a little woody amongst the first few infusions, but it mellowed nicely as it progressed through the infusions into the deep aged sweetness that I love in old puerh. The chaqi was excellent, building throughout the tea session, leaving me calm and still and definitely more than a little tea drunk at the end.

The storage has been good and the leaves are clean, without even a trace of frosting.

This cake is a lot cheaper than most cakes from the 70’s since the taste is not as refined as the famous factory productions. Nevertheless it makes an excellent choice for those wishing to drink a 1970’s bing without paying three or four times the price for a cake.
