Price: 250g bag £13.65 ($21.42)

58/100

Summary: A worn out tea that provides a mellow, creamy taste. For an aged tea with more flavours, I recommend one of these:
Wild Quarter Brick 1990 by pu-erh.sk
Yiwu 1999 maocha by pu-erh.sk
Tuo Cha 1990 by pu-erh.sk
1980’s Tong Qing Hao Tea Cake by SampleTea

5g in Gaiwan.

Dry: Slightly dusty, warehouse aroma. Loose leaf + clumps that are dark brown.
Wet: Slightly smoky, wet wood. No aged flavours like bird-cage or church-like aromas. Dark brown leaves and the odd black stem and leaf.
Note: There is no label on the paper bag to say what the tea is. Maybe they don’t know what it is?

Rinse water is dark gold.
5s – Dark gold. Very mild, very subtle hints of wood.
10s – Dark gold. Very mild, subtle hints of wood. No bitterness or astringency.
25s – Dark gold. Has some of the sweetness from shu pu-erh.
30s – Less dark gold. Soft wet wood. Taste is clean. Slight sparkle on the swallow. This tea tastes like it is very worn out.
40s – Dark gold. Some subtle bitterness against the soft wet wood.
50s – Dark gold. Mild wet wood, slightly creamy.

Flavors: Creamy, Wet wood

I bought this too. IT was a bargain price. I sent some samples to others. Cwyn thought it younger than 1990’s but wet stored. She thought it maybe three years old or so. Me I couldn’t be certain. I did think for the price it wasn’t bad.

I bought it after reading your review. It sounded like a bargain.

This is a tasty and interesting aged tea. It has not developed any particularly unpleasant flavors through its storage. The best way I can describe the flavor of this tea is burnt honey or sugar without the sweetness of honey or sugar. It has a somewhat raw aged taste initially. This flavor slowly turned into something more plesant. I really don’t know how to accurately describe this tea as it is the first true aged sheng I have drank. In color it looks like a shou to be honest but it definitely tastes like an aged sheng. It had none of the bitterness of a young aged sheng while in effect having its own sort of bitterness, does that make any sense. This was a tea I had little in the expectations for as I only paid something like $25 for 250g, cheap. This was definitely worth the price. I enjoyed it a lot. I can’t tell you how it compares to other 1990s sheng because I haven’t drank them. For the price involved I recommend this tea.

I steeped this tea ten times in a 150ml gaiwan with 10g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and let the leaves rest about ten minutes. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min.

Ordered – my first with this seller.

I hope you like it. It should be noted that it was Cwyn’s opinion that this was actually younger sheng but humid stored. Although I remember no wet storage tastes.

It sounds like an interesting one, and I don’t have too many aged tea, so I look forward to this.
