I’m trying again to love this tea, after reading some comments on Instagram about its more endearing qualities. I think the reality is that Taiwanese style puer isn’t my style. I pushed the tea harder this time and produced more plum and astringency, but it still seems a bit hollow. There’s underripe stonefruit pit astringency and spring Witch Hazel twigs, but some decided sourness as well. Chalking this up to a style of semi-aged puer which isn’t me.

I think you should retry the XZH 8582 now and see if you can figure out if this taste is truly not for you. While many people like this one, it won’t be for all. I prefer the Ming Jing but mainly because I like delicate flavors.

That’s a good point, I’ve always loved that XZH 8582, I’ll revisit soon. I think part of me not liking Taiwanese style (and this tea in particular) is that I don’t get that excited about Yiwu, it always seems so soft and subtle.

Finally got back to the XZH 8582. I’ve had it a few times since I purchased it, but not since trying the CYH, it’s an interesting contrast. Part of it is the drier storage I have on the 8582, it still has more punch, sweetness, and astringency. I can now see these teas being similar in a way, with plummy softness and saliva production, I just feel like the 8582 beats the CYH on all fronts, especially in the qi, the 8582 is just wonderfully strong, warm, calming and happy.
