From The Essence of Tea

This is bing is a favourite amongst many experienced puerh aficionados in Asia. This bing is one of a few test pressings that happened in the early 1980’s using a recipe that later came to be standardised as 8582.

This cake, along with the early 8582 bings stand out from the rest of the bings of the Masterpiece and Chi-Tse eras due to the composition of the maocha used to press the cakes. Whereas all other cakes are pressed mostly or entirely from plantation leaves, these cakes are made from old growth & wild trees.

The taste, as with 8582 bings, is smooth – perhaps without the complexity of recipes such as 7542 or 7532, but is pure tasting, with a pronounced camphor flavour and with a very nice qi.

This tea is really a joy to drink.
