Our highest quality and most complex blend from 2015. A tea worthy of aging, but a joy to drink for lovers of young raw Puer tea. The 72Hours blend is intensely sweet and has a variety of engaging characteristics. We recommend this as a tea for special occasions or focused brewing.
The material in this blend crosses many regions and mountains, but all of the material used is of excellent quality. We have been studying this blend of material for several years and after short term aging (~5 years) the soup becomes increasingly viscous and sweet, with an intense body fee

Unlike a lot of the teas I go for, this tea is by no means assertive or flashy. It is, however, thick, durable, and a pretty consistent qi bomb. The flavor is tough to pin down; maybe a hair alkaline, but mostly juicy, sweet, and without a hint of bitterness. It can be finicky, though; if you steep it aggressively, it’ll get really astringent really fast. So long as you can keep that in check, you’ll be rewarded with an excellent, long session that’s all but guaranteed to leave you in a state of blissed-out relaxation. I’ve seriously brewed this tea to calm my wife down from a panic attack before.
I’ve owned two cakes of this for a while, but it’s taken me some time to get around to reviewing it. This is up there with Last Thoughts and Treachery of Storytelling for me, and I’m very fortunate to have it in my collection.
This has to be one of White2Tea’s most incredible sheng puer’s to date. I’ve had this tea since September, and only sipped on it a few times. The last time I sipped on it, it released to much tension in my body that it made me cry. This tea is beautifully complex, and makes you feel amazing when drinking it. Not only that, it taste like cotton candy! This is a perfect example of what a blended sheng puer should taste like.

Last years best blend they say… blend or not, I will still take some TAF : )
This had a good three steeps to get through the astringency, but the mouth feel and thickness of the tea lasted a good 12 steeps which is all I was able to get out of it because tea hasn’t been that great of a thing for me lately.
Drank this tea down and finished packing 34 sets : )
Sent all of those out and have been receiving paragraphs from people as they try to figure out their taste and where/how to buy pu’erh.
Considering that I am going to hit 200 beginner packages this year… this community has put power behind me to jumpstart a whole new customer basis for many vendors come 2017, just watch, together we have been doing something big for the online tea community :)
Wish this tea had the feels that TAF had though, it was easily one to sip and work with…. didn’t NAKA me out or make me turn upsidedown like a LBZ
Definitely enjoyable but I think I’m still too much of a n00b to fully grasp a tea like this. I felt the same way about Bosch, its undoubtedly good but I don’t see why its great. It’s not mind blowing in the way Tuhao was for me. Im not saying one tea is better then the next, I’m just saying if they are, Im too much of a n00b to understand why.
After tasting most of W2T’s 2015 spring harvest I wasn’t expecting too big a surprise with this tea. It takes it right up to the line but never crosses it. This is the first sheng to make me sweat and it did so on the third infusion. Really nicely balanced. I feel like I could lift a truck over my head after drinking this.
Flavors: Astringent, Hay, Sweet, Tobacco, Zucchini
I am so happy that I am the first to review this.
This is a prime example of what Sheng should be like. The dry leaf is gorgoeus. This cake is an array of loosely compressed autumn colored maocha. The bing carries an almost medicinal scent. I can pickup a slight eucalyptus scent mixed with an underlining sweetness. I broke off a chunk and placed in my warmed yixing. The scent was unusual. I’ve never smelled something so lively. It was like escaping to a jungle. The scent was thick, hot, and humid. I could smell the vines growing rampant around me. I washed these leaves once and began possibly one of my best gongfu sessions. The steeped leaves changed dramatically. These oily olive colored leaves carried the scent of an old Victorian home with a slight peppery aroma. The liquor was a pale gold and shone bright. It looked like translucent white gold. The taste was spectacular. I’ve never tasted something so silky and sweet. I was drowning in huigan. This brew gives a thick, and I mean THICK, mouth coating. The flavor was like watercress, silk, cream, and sugarcane. There was absolutely no bitterness or astringency. I found out that you can’t make this tea bitter. I used boiling water and steeped for a little bit of time, and the brew only grew sweeter. This was well rounded and the taste lasted well after steeping. The qi was incredible. My body completely soothed and my spirits became uplifted. This tea gave an all encompassing comfort to my body. I took my time with this session. Eventually, I had to go to work. I left my table until afterwards. I came back several hours later and resumed brewing. The liquor was still powerful and just as sweet. I honestly don’t know how many steeps I got out of this. This is by far my favorite sheng. This is a delicious brew, and I can only imagine how it will be aged.
Flavors: Creamy, Eucalyptus, Honeysuckle, Rainforest, Sweet
