From Yunnan Sourcing

The classic 7581 Ripe Pu-erh recipe from Kunming Tea Factory (aka CNNP). This is a 2007 production comprised entirely of fermented Menghai area large leaf varietal Pu-erh. The brewed tea is sweet and smooth. The color of the tea liquor is deep red wine hue. A very enjoyable tea with just the right amount of aging.

This brew was better at the start than the last one. It was one large chunk of tea from the sample bag, so that may have helped. It started out sweet and cocoa. Not as good or strong as other factory shou, but this flavor I could do regularly. I set the tea aside after a few steeps and came back to it today. When I came back it was more woody and spicy, not flavors I like for shou. Didn’t have a ton of life left in it either. I guess I can see why some like this, but I think it may also be an inconsistent tea as well. Glad I only have enough tea left for one more small session.

Felt like having some shou this evening and this was the one that won the “rummage around in the tea cabinet” lottery.

I mostly drink sheng so I figure I should expand my horizons a bit. This was a good one to choose, though, since the flavour was quite mild. Generally earthy, but nothing too offensive about it. Also, it tasted pretty consistent from steep to steep.

Glad I got a chance to try this. I still have enough for 1 serving, I think. This is a good “starter” for newbies like me.

Thanks for sending me some, Ubacat!

I think this is the best one out of the monthly package for Yunnan Sourcing. It’s pretty cheap too. Only $24US for a 250g brick.

It’s pretty smooth. I’m not getting any complex flavors but it’s how they describe it: sweet and smooth. I’m on infusion 4 and was not even thinking I would make it past the second one. I’m not a big shu fan.
