From The Essence of Tea

This 70’s Loose leaf sheng puerh is of a higher quality than the WangZi & Da Ye loose leaf sheng puerhs I offer.

This tea displays a thick, smooth aged flavour, offering more complexity and a pleasant medium-strong qi.

While not in the same league as cakes of a similar era, this loose leaf is an affordable step towards that level & very enjoyable to drink.

In the mood for some aged sheng, I decided to prepare a steeping of this tea. I use about 6 grams in 100 ml of water. Since this is a loose leaf the leaves are intact and beautiful to look at. The colour of the dry leaf ranges from a copper-like colour to a dusty black. The wet leaves radiate an immense wood, wet forest floor-like character with hints of spices in the background. The soup is a dark red with very little cloudiness. It’s thick in the mouth with a smooth texture. As the nose suggests, there are notes of wood and spices. Nice hui gan with an apparent qi. Excellent tea. 87/100

Note : On my third steeping, I think I could have gotten away with much less leaf. Perhaps 4-5 grams would have been sufficient.
