From White2Tea

Produced with the classic 7572 recipe by the Guangdong FT [Fei Tai] group. Freshly pressed, this tea still has some duiwei [pile taste] in the first few steeps. An inexpensive ripe puer tea for a new 357 gram tea with a trusted brand name.

Sweet, creamy, vanilla, dark cocoa – the best descriptors for this fine shu! Very drinkable and enjoyable with no off-putting taste at all. The flavor profile was less developed in the first two steeps but by the third it had picked up and then exploded in the fourth. Half a cake left and I wish White 2 Tea had more.

I’ve got one of these somewhere. Have to find the box it’s in and give it a try.

Thanks to my buddy BezoomnyChaiVeck for the sample :D

This is incredibly solid shou. Sweet and rich and very satisfying! Looks like this was a very good price too but is now sold out. I will remember for future reference that Feitai is good tea and 7572 is a nice recipe! :)

I have a whole cake of this that I haven’t even broken into yet. I could send you some more, if you wanted.

Stephanie

Aww you should try it Cheri! :D

7572 is the best recipe in ripe IMO :) and I’m the one who bought the last cake :)

AllanK

Stephanie

Holy crap.

I just had a shou epiphany.

A rinse and rest is not enough to stop shou from tasting like I licked the pots at the plant nursery. I did a 10 second rinse, then a rest. Then I tried to brew 10 and 15. That earthy flavor is front and center and I can’t get to the flavors BEHIND it.

Dumped those. Then I brewed another 10 second. Dumped that. THEN I brewed a 10 and 15. NOW there is some actual flavor beyond just something dirty. It’s very sweet and mild. I mean, it’s still a LITTLE dirty. But now there are other flavors, like caramel and dark candies.

I have a long weekend and I’m going to spend at least some of it re-brewing shous I kind of liked, along with those that I didn’t even post b/c I just couldn’t stand them.

I may actually start to like shou. And it’s about damn time!

For me it was the opposite. I couldn’t stand sheng for a long time but loved shou.

TheTeaFairy

Yay! Come on, out the closet, shou girl!!!

boychik

I’m like Allan. I’m learning to love sheng

SarsyPie

I’m pretty excited! I knew you shou lovers couldn’t all be crazy! :p

I hope that longer rinses and more pre-steeps will improve some of the other shous I wast crazy about!

boychik

Some aged shou have cleaner taste. That’s what you need. I think I have something like this. Let me think, I can send you some samples.

boychik

Aged like maybe 2007

SarsyPie

Awesome, boychik! Thank you!

KiwiDelight

Shu > sheng. For now anyway.

Although I did try a mythical sheng in the one of the Butiki traveling boxes and it was one of the greatest things evar.

AllanK

Sarsonator I recommend the 2008 Song of Chi Tse, I can arrange a sample.

Terri HarpLady

I originally preferred Shou over sheng, & then it was the other way around. I enjoy them both now, but tend to reach for sheng more often for its restorative quality & amazing energetics.

SarsyPie

I am looking forward to enjoying shou as much as sheng!

SimpliciTEA

Great review. I am still new to pu, and I prefer shu to sheng, but I appreciate the notes about why you may want to do multiple rinses before drinking newer shu; I read in other reviews that they did three rinses before actually drinking any subsequent steeps, but they didn’t state why. The idea that there may be better, more pleasant flavors hiding behind the initially prominent earthy flavors gives me hope as well. Thank You for including that useful information in your review!

SarsyPie

Thanks for the kind words, SimpliciTEA! It was driving me nuts to see all my tea friends just adoring shou, but I couldn’t love it as much as they did! I’ve found some shous take 1 rinse, and some take 5, but so far, they’ve all been pleasant at some point after rinsing.
