1060 Tasting Notes

2003 Serious Formula from Henry Trading co…
My goodness… talk about a tea with depth at an EXTREME value. Incredibly glad that I’m including this in the Pubertea. This tea delivers like no other. I’m sure there will be lots of conversation around this tea when people get to it.

I didn’t intend on drinking any of these, but this was a blind buy based on a high recommendation and boy am I glad that it came through the way it does/has.

I have a feeling a few of us will be experiencing some quite nice levels of tea drunk when this arrives.

Randomly threw some of this into a gaiwan and began a session that was bleh.
Very basiic raw puerh with some umph to it in regards to bitterness.

After 12 steeps I was like… this is not on the same level as the other at all ; ‘what the heck mayne???’

Well… $22 cake, I suppose that answers my internal thoughts; not to say cheap tea is weak or weak tea is cheap or expensive tea… yadda yadda

This brews out a bit darker than everything else I’ve tried from the chawang 2016 lineup thus far.

Pretty deep taste to it that comes with a little dryness on the back. Thea leaf when wet has a great aroma that is strong and the liquid comes out with a small amount of viscosity that would be above normal, however I think the mouth is confused by the dryness to think so. The huigan does come through quite nice on this tea as well with the slightest hint of lingering smoke.

Considering where this tea is at now, I really think it has great potential to be humid stored for 3 plus years before it gains some ‘legs’ and I really think that it’ll improve as the slight smoke goes away but the boldness of this tea sticks. For the price, it’s a good throw in the back of some area type of buy.

After around 12 steeps on this tea I decided to take a step back and think to myself: A newer raw puerh has to REALLY set itself apart to be looked at again in the near future opposed to potential for down the line.
With that train of thought I came to conclude that this was was quite similar to the majority of spring jingmai cakes that I tried from 2016 to the point that this didn’t really interest me much afterwards which is fine, however the question is how long the sweetness will last in this tea before it mature and takes on a possible new road if that happens.

Not on the bottom, not on the top, probably somewhere in the middle.

After breaking this cake I had about 2 to 3 grams of dust and REALLY broken leaf.
The cake itself was comprised of pretty ugly material, but at this point it has some age to it and I think it offers some unique taste to the Pubertea buy; and a little bit of insider info since you’re reading this, I am going to do this yearly while older tea is still within my grasp.

So the brew comes out rather dark with clarity to it. The taste is really bold and upfront with this interesting smoked fruit lasting taste. Taste last for awhile and the body heat does as well.

Really solid tea here for the price. Semi smoked fruit…. but the smoke is distant memory, if you know what I mean. Fun times ahead for many : )

Happy to hear this will be a repeat event!

Drinking this 2002 cnnp bulang again… stored in Hong Kong for over 10 years and I bought this dudes last cake. Really strong stuff, I think it needs to settle but sometimes a brisk brew is a nice thing.

Strong camphor coming from this… hope my storage lightens a bit

drank 2007 Mi Lan Xiang by Hojo Tea

A rather decent tea, however I have to admit that the 2012 dancong they have is at least 2 to 3 times better. Longevity of this tea is brief and the fruit notes are not as powerful. Drank this with a hand full of people a few weekends back and then again today to really test it out. Not something I would/will stock up on while the 2012 might be.

I don’t get to drink outside as much as I like because I am just swamped with stuff to do and yes I took it on all by myself!

80+ new puerh drinkers have packages going out to them. Teaching my gf how to break and weigh gifts; meaning exacts don’t matter :P
Pubertea… the pubertea side buy.
So excited to read through everyone’s sessions.

Anyways, this tea. This tea right here. Right here, this tea.

Light. Crisp. Everlasting?

Really enjoyable, but I think the pictures do justice for explaining the experience.

I feel so zapped every night that it’s hard to sit down and just write a review; however it has been replaced with opening up IG/Reddit/Steepster and talking to others about tea : )

Dang, this is part of it? It’s a pricey one, but good one I haven’t been able to sit down and take proper notes of it, but it is good and strong from first impression.

Liquid Proust

Part of what?

JC

Ah, for a second I thought this was going to be included in the packages you are sending out to people. :P

drank 2016 Lao Hei Zhai by Hojo Tea
1060 tasting notes

Hands down among the top 3 raw puerh in terms of leaf quality… beautiful beautiful beautiful leaf.

Anyways, Hojo’’s info
“It is made of the naturally farmed
tea.It gives light body and extremely
long lasting after taste. Tea gives flioral
note thanks to slightly lighter panfrying
process. This tea will also age
very well as it is very rich in poly
phenol and minerals.”

$60/200g

This is a must purchase for me after I had two sessions of it. The tea goes on for 20+ steeps and it’s absolutely amazing. Hopefully there is a 2017 that comes out as well so I can compare the two over time.

Solid light taste with floral notes inbetween the vegetable notes and a light raw puerh note that isn’t hard on the mouth at all.

Rich

Hojo group buy?

mrmopar

Sounds like it…

Sqt

dfafjf

Liquid Proust

Sqt

Rich

Absolutely! I’m in!

mrmopar

Probably as well.

drank 2014 He Kai gushu by Teamania
1060 tasting notes

Going through some samples and came across this one: https://www.teamania.ch/en/hekai-shan-gushu-2014.html

Two sessions in the last week to reassure what I tasted here. Really nice thickness to the liquid. Lots of the autumn like taste going on with this even though it’s spring picking. I believe this is one of those teas that if left for years will become a heavy dark and thick drink in the future. Right now it is already quite thick and potent, but with my newly acquired taste of aged stuff… everything is just a few strokes of a painting that I can gamble on in regards to the full pictures years to come when it’s either close to finish or enough to consumed wholly.

Puerh has become less of taste and more of experience as I’ve gotten to know not only the liquid but the leaf as well. Lots and lots of hard to explain concepts for this hobby.
