From White 2 Tea

This cake was made with the classic 7542 style recipe for Yunnan Sheng Gongsi (Zhongcha /CNNP) by Liming factory around the time of its opening. The tea was stored in dry storage in south China. The cost of this cake is higher than most of our offerings, but is considered to be slightly above average in its bracket in the current Chinese market. The price is in part due to the pedigree of the cake being real 7542 from CNNP and in part due to the clean, dry storage of the cake. The tea has a classic fragrance of wood, and is smooth enough to drink now. There are very faint hints of any humidity, which most tea drinkers will not even notice.

Very smooth tea with nice depth and complexity. Clean and bright deep red tea soup. I discovered woody, sweet and spicy tastes combined in an interesting way. Qi hit me during the second cup – appeared as a fullness in my head and this continued through the session. I did not detect any bitterness or astringency and hope to enjoy another session with the same leaves. Unable to justify the price of a whole cake but I am delighted to have a generous sample to use over several different sessions.

I’m not sure what to say about this tea really; it’s clean, smooth, nice huigan, tongue-tingling, mouth-cooling, spicy.. It puts the storage of many teas to shame, and overall it delivers. BUT it’s not as durable as I expected; had to start pushing early/hard and by 13 or 14 infusions it was completely done for, except spicy aftertaste (I can probably do like an 8 minute steep, or dry it out and get a few tomorrow, but meh…)

Is it worth $1100/bing for drinking? No way. You’d have to be a serious collector to buy this. I still recommend sampling it though, it is an excellent dry-stored tea, and in bite-sized chunks it’s worth paying for the education. I have enough for another session, and will do a side-by-side with some other well-stored 90s tea.

Good review. I’ll put off buying the full cake ;)
