2000 CNNP 7561 Aged Raw Pu-erh Tea Brick * 250 grams

Classic production pressed in the Yi Liang tea factory just outside of Kunming. 7561 is considered a “tippy grade” recipe. The bricks have been dry aged in a Kunming warehouse for 14 years!

The brewed leaves yield alot of complexity and a good mix of astringency/sourness with a smooth and sweet finish. The tea soup is thick in the mouth with and almost ‘citrusy’ feeling that lingers in the back of the mouth, like after eating several tangerines. Very crisp and clean with no traces of moldiness, dankiness or other storage problems. Gives a tingling sensation and a has solid cha qi.

250 grams per brick, sample available!

Wonderful aged sheng! I got this tea from my recent YS order, and this tea definitely is worth it for the price. The brick was easily breakable, albeit having a mix of stems and leaves with, it still has a relatively decent proportion of buds. One thing though is that the brick has quite a fair bit of hair compressed into it, at least with the sample that I got. Rich aroma in the wet leaf with a nuanced smokey aroma in the dry leaf, liquor was a vibrant amber orange with a slight viscosity to it.

Flavour was really impressive especially in the first few steeps with a complex mix of smokey, bitter, stonefruits, and an aged fermented taste. Rich, deep, vibrant. Texture was smooth yet astringent, evolving into juiciness as one swallows the liquor, character was decent-ish to good, with a nice evolution of flavour from deep and vibrant to a more simple honey sweetness that was still nice (albeit I preferred the liquor as presented in the first few steeps). Finish & aftertaste was decent, great juicy finish with a mild lingering smokey/sweet aftertaste. Cha-qi was pretty decent, good buzz especially at the first few steeps, but on top of that an active stomach sensation that was present later on. Steep longevity was decent to good. I stopped at steep 10 but I think this tea could go on to steep 11-12.

Overall, a wonderful tea that could easily be 85-90+ if the flavour present in the first few steeps persisted for longer along with ticking a few more boxes in the finish and aftertaste department. Potentially worth getting a full brick.

When I place an order from YS, I’ve sort of fallen into the habit of picking out a few puerh to sample. There is a sidebar on the right hand side of their page that lists their new featured products, and this was on that list awhile back, so I got a sample.

I started drinking it yesterday, ran through several steepings & then today after breakfast I gave it a rinse to refresh it & have been drinking it ever since. The dry aroma has that well aged hayloft aroma, but also the promise of a meadow of sweet clover. It really smells good! It’s a very ‘clean’ tasting tea, with a decent energy to it, & although I enjoyed it, it sort of seems a little generic to me.
(Don’t shoot me, I know nothing, Jon Snow!)
Maybe it’s just that the greenness is aged out of it, so although it has a hint of citrus & doesn’t taste bad in any way (obviously, since I have been drinking it on an off for about 24 hours now), there is also nothing that stands out about it, for me. I didn’t find any changes in the flavor profile, for instance.

Of course, what do I know? :)

Terri when I get ready to add another addiction, would you be my YS guru-ess? As far as I can tell, I pretty much like what you like and YS is overwhelming

Terri HarpLady

I’ll send you samples of everything I have, LOL

MzPriss

Oh that might be scary! You have everything. I ws just wondering where to start looking. Because I went there it’s tea overload.

Terri HarpLady

It IS tea overload! They have SO MANY teas, so I’m seriously going to send you a bunch of samples, LOL.

(And when she says “a bunch” she means it, trust me… :-))

Terri’s box is unbelievable . She was my Guru into YS. I still have to work on TTC samples

Terri HarpLady

:D
I love YS, LOL. I loitered on that site for months before I finally placed an order, & I’ve placed several since. In fact, I have a small order in transit right now! I just can’t stay away!

BigDaddy

Just received mine Monday, can’t wait for the weekend to get tea drunk. Of course I spent too much and have enough tea to take me through retirement. YS has that effect on me.

Terri HarpLady

LOL, if I never bought tea again & sent sampler boxes to all my friends, I’m still probably covered for the rest of my life :)

Terri HarpLady

…and yet I keep buying more…
