From TuochaTea.com

Nu Er Gong Bing is also known as “Dowry Tea Cake”, it is the one of high grade premium raw Pu-erh, composed almost entirely tender tips spring tea. The tea was first produced by Menghai tea factory in 2005, it was considered an excellent candidate for a great Pu-erh by collectors. This 2008 vintage raw cake has developed a uniquely smooth and rich flavor with an exceptionally long finish, although ready to drink now, is certainly worth laying down to let it mature.

I managed to enjoy this tea but there were some negative notes. There were pronounced sour notes, especially in the first four steeps. There were also sweet notes. I didn’t give this tea any time to acclimate to it’s new environment, having just received it yesterday. I have been told you should give a puerh a week to acclimate. I don’t know if this advice is valid but I have been told by good sources including Scott at Yunnan Sourcing that it may be the case. As to the sour note, I have been told that that is a condition of dry storage so this tea probably did not experience much humidity.

I steeped this tea eight times in a 120ml gaiwan with 7.9g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec. I will say I have generally had good luck with teas from Tuocha Tea in general so am hopeful this one will improve. Perhaps I will clear a spot in my pumidor for it.
