From Beautiful Taiwan Tea Company

“Debuted by the Menghai factory in 1985, the 8582 recipe is a well-known classic. This 1992 edition is marked with a purple "天“ character meaning it was meant for the HK market but this particular lot was bought by a merchant in Taiwan who stored it there in natural storage until now.

Smooth, beautiful color and a pleasure to drink. Slight humidity on the nose and in the wet leaf but not much and it will dissipate with time if that’s not your thing.

I’ve priced these as competitively as I can for tea lovers and learners so get as much as we are able to provide!

These aged teas are like elderly, respected people. They just have a lot to give. Slow down. Listen, learn and just… respectfully absorb what’s there." -BTT

Another sample that was snagged from the Christmas purchase my wife had made for me….I gave her a list of teas from BTTC and she picked the samples she thought I’d like the most.

Now, like the 1980s Dank Puerh, this one has a dankness to the nose/tongue, but not as much. I noted that the dry leaf reminded me of an old house with old furniture—covered in dust—rather than “your grandma’s grandma’s basement.”

Upon steeping this tea, the wet leaf produces a bit of a wet hay pile, with a touch of dried gourds that one might acquire for Fall decorations.

The flavor profile is less dank; although, it too, has that wet hay pile note on the tongue. Rather than having that bitter-astringent factor, it only has the dryness following the course of a few cups, however, it’s smooth, too.

Overall, I like this one. I oftentimes regret liking the older puerh because it is and/or can be at a higher range than I’d prefer paying….However, like video games, I’d prefer having a few good ones that’d last a long time, rather than many which I’d not venture into drinking that often…. ;)
