Puerh TTB

Solid aged taste, slight astringency. Not much complexity in flavor, though discernible notes are similar to an older yiwu with the woodiness. Lots of humidity. Probably not something I’d buy.

2002 Top Aged Yunnan CNNP 7542 Zhong Cha (raw)

Price:100g £8.95 ($13.98).

7g in Gaiwan.

Summary: This tea has an interesting aged taste, and has good longevity. Looking at the wet leaves I cannot see any black leaves, which leaves me to believe its age.

Dry: Dark brown; medium compression; dry dusty aroma.
Wet: Light porridge sweetness, dust, then hot fruit. Faint church-like aroma.

5s – Light brown. Woody-creamy. An aged flavour.
10s – Slight bitterness on the swallow contrasts with the mild woody-creamy body. Taste is smooth and interesting.
15s – More of the same.
20s – Some sourness, but still have that aged taste.

Flavors: Creamy, Wood

Preparation
7 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

I have bought a number of solid ripes from Streetshop88. I decided to give one of their aged raws a shot. This is a middle aged 7542 that sells for $33 a cake, so I had my doubts. That’s not much more than a new 7542 after all. Well, as far as I can tell, this is the real deal. It brewed a nice bronze color. The broth was clear, the leaves were in good shape, and I was able to get lots of flavorful infusions, as you’d expect from this tea. There was no humid storage flavors. It tasted its age. This is probably the best bargain I’ve seen for a quality factory tea that is more than 10 years old.

Has to be better than the one we got from Dragon. That one still burns a bit if you know what I mean.

Rich

I do.

This arrived today and all I will say, until I review it is, wow – I did not expect it to be this good. Reading your review and drinking it, I would say you are spot on.

I believe I found ripe pu-erh leaves in my sample of this. Have you noticed this too?

Rich

It’s possible. A few of us tried another aged CNNP from them that may have been a fake, shu and sheng mixed or wet storage.
