From Teavivre

The fresh leaves for making this cake were picked and processed into raw teas (毛茶) in spring, 2006. Then a two-year pile fermentation process was carried out before they were further processed into cake teas in May, 2008. In the following seven years, those cake teas have been stored in the special warehouses for fermentation purpose until this year. So, when brewing this tea the aged scent is prominent and the liquor is typically bright red and clear. The liquid aroma of this tea is intriguing and smells a little bit like red dates while tastes very mild and balanced without bitterness. On the whole, this product is ideal for pu-erh tea beginners and daily consumption.

Steeped 5 grams of this in the gaiwan this morning, but drank while multitasking, so no detailed notes. That being said, I don’t think I would have /too/ much to say about it, as it’s not really anything special. It’s good, drinkable and a good value for a daily drinker. Doesn’t really have anything about it that stands out much. Smooth, sweet and mellow, as teavivre and other describe, and the taste remains pretty nice and consistent throughout steeps. Nice, calming cha qi, as well.

Thanks so much, Teavivre! Teavivre’s description calls this one a “daily drinker” or “beginner’s” pu-erh and I think it is quite tasty for a pu-erh that is so low in price. I am finding that I really like pu-erh aged for about ten years the best. This ripened pu-erh has a scent of fresh hay in the dry leaf — smells delicious! The steeped leaves are quite long. The color of the brew is a deep, rich burgundy. There is a pond scent to the rinse water, but then any of that is gone by the first steep. The flavor is lovely, not as strong as some pu-erhs are to me. It’s not quite like a pu-erh that reminds me of coffee. I really like a deep dark pu-erh — this is consistently medium strength. This pu-erh remains sweet. When the cup cools, the tea tastes like fresh raw bread dough! Very interesting.
Steep #1 // half sample for a full mug (about 5 grams)// 7 minutes after boiling // rinse // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3 minute steep
Steep #3 // just boiled // 3-4 minute steep
