From Yunnan Craft

Vintage shu-puerh from Tong Qing Hao – Dai Zu family from Yi Wu who run their tea business for 4 generations. Nice stored with old wood base in flavor and walnut notes giving sweet mouth feel. Cakes has been recently re-wrapped into the more durable paper since the original ones got probably eaten by worms. There is a 1999 date on “nei piao” and hardly ever anybody could say for sure the tea is really from that year. However , from our experience we can say for sure this tea is from around 2008.

Overall, a nice, creamy ripe. It has notes of vanilla and bourbon cask, some dry chocolate notes, raw Brazil and hazelnut, and cherry pit and cherry wood flavors. There are the slightest hints of horehound in the aftertaste. It has a creamy flavor, although I wouldn’t necessarily describe the mouthfeel as creamy – it felt a bit light for me, although I tend to like really thick motor-oil ripes.

I couldn’t detect much of an aged taste, although there was a certain “fusty” dustiness that popped up very subtly in the finish. No camphor notes or other flavors that point to more progressed aging. On the topic of age, I appreciate Yunnan Craft’s addressing the purported age of this tea with what they consider to be more realistic.

So, a nice tea if you like ripes on the lighter end of things, and the flavors are very good. Decent value for the price.
