From Yunnan Sourcing

This is an excellent ripe tea that was wet piled in Menghai and pressed in Kunming in 1992! It’s been stored in Kunming since 1992, making it an excellent example of how awesome Kunming aging can be for ripe pu-erh (and raw) tea! 26 years of age has given this an incredibly smooth and complex taste, featuring dried fruit, wood and cream aspects!

This is one of the best aged ripe pu-erh teas I’ve ever had! The effect of the cha qi is very nice and subtle, with a nurturing component! The tea can be steeped many many times!

One 100 gram tuo would provide 20 sessions (if you use 5 grams ) or 14 sessions if you use 7 grams)!

There is no date stamp on the packaging!

This tea is so different from any other one I’ve had that find it very hard to assess or describe. Either way, it’s phenomenal.

Let me try to put down some thoughts at least though. The taste profile has a strong tartiness and a bitter backbone. It is not very sweet and has a nutty character. Many things capture my attention at the same time so it’s hard to focus on either. The mouthfeel is incredibly smooth and thick as well as somewhat lubricating. Aftertaste is about as strong (which means very pungent) as the taste itself and evolves from tart to spicy to sweetish and remains interesting for a long time. Cha qi can be felt from the very first infusion. My head is clear and warming sensation spreads through my body. Rather than entering a dreamy state, I feel the reality more present in some sense. The aromas are very nice, mellow and clear too, not nearly as muddy as you get with wet stored shou.

Those were notes I got from first two infusions. The third steep somehow manages to be even thicker and is more savoury and balanced than the first two. My favourite so far. Also the texture of this steep is so bubbly, I love it! I will stop writing now and enjoy the tea, it’s also pretty clear that this will steep for a long time.

With my very limited experience in terms of aged pu’er, it should be taken with a grain of salt, but if you – like myself – are new to aged stuff, I can 100% recommend this tea. (but please don’t buy all of it, I want to get a tuo or two once I have the funds :D)
