From The Essence of Tea

I came across these 80’s tuochas whilst on the hunt for a relatively inexpensive, well stored aged puerh that I could drink more regularly.

Since bringing a few back for myself, some friends with whom I’d been drinking this asked if I might be able to get some more. Luckily a friend in Taiwan was able to hunt down some more of these, so I bought a few extra.

These 80’s tuocha have been stored very well. The leaves & liquor are clean and free from any hint of mustiness. This tuo has aged nicely, with a mellow, smooth taste, pleasant chaqi and a sweet, lasting huigan. The wet leaves are supple and nicely browned with age. I gu ess it may not have the complexities of taste of some bings from this era, but the price tag is far removed from theirs too. For me this tuo fulfills my needs perfectly – inexpensive, nice chaqi and pleasant taste. I’m keeping a few for my own tea cabinet.

These tuos originally come packaged in a bamboo tong of 5×250g tuos and bear the CNNP label, with the words ‘Yunnan Jincha’ at the top. During this period only CNNP could import and export tea from China so, although manufactured by Xiaguan this tea is wrapped in a CNNP wrapper.

I really enjoyed this one. It probably has (for me) the best price/quality ratio from teas I’ve tried from EoT. Its energy is very good, the tea tastes nice and complex. I could not find any weakness. More notes at: http://jakubtomek.blogspot.com/2012/03/1980s-bamboo-wrapped-tuocha.html
