From Menghai Tea Factory(from berylleb ebay)

Real Taste is flavorful product newly manufactured by Menghia Tea Factory in 2009. It is dedicated to promoting the taste of superior Pu’er tea and its core research concept that knowing the original flavor is getting the real taste is embodied by the optimized technology and fermentation control. The surface tea yields a mild color with tip hairs, while the center tea consists of fat mature leaves. The pure aroma of this tea is long lasting and laced with floral scents. It yields a strong flavor with a touch of sweet aftertaste and a bright yellow broth. When brewed, the tea leaves appear uniform and symmetrical. Comparing with the benchmark product of 7542, Real Taste has a lighter taste and better aroma. It is an excellent tea product for most pu’er tea customers.

I got this one in on an order today. Just don’t tell anyone I added it in.
Most of the time I let them acclimate in the “pumidor” for a week or two before I get into them. As I really like the shou version of this from the same year I said let’s toss it in the Gaiwan and give it a whirl.
I got about 11 grams to start with and a very quick wash to start out.
First brew very light aroma . Some decent color but it still showed its young age. The first cup was very mild with only the lightest notes of grass , slight smokiness and a bit of drying. The mouthfeel was ok but I think the rest let a bit to be desired. This may have happened since I brewed it right away after the wash. I usually tend to let them open up with the moisture for about 10 to 30 mins.
I let it sit, almost an hour and I am back at it.
Now with a little time and 5 second steeps it is coming out a bit. The color hasn’t really darkened. The smokiness has been enhanced a bit. It carries a bit of floral but only a touch. The drying astringency on the middle and back of the tongue more pronounced.
Final notes. Still young. leaf looks nice albeit chopped a bit. Should be better with a little age or time to acclimate to my conditions. I guess if I was sealed in a plastic bag in a box and tossed on a plane and shipped for about 3 weeks I would be a bit bruised and not ready to open up myself.
