From Tea Classico

This CNNP 7542 raw puer cake was traditionally stored in HK and then acquired by Taiwan-based tea trader. Cake exibits no obvious evidence of mold or anything along those lines, and storage smell is very light. On the second or third infusion, you see perfect darkish amber-brown liquor that is the hallmark of a traditionally stored tea. Brewed tea still shows a little bitterness but is already exhibiting gentle sweetness and a very pleasant and complex taste. – See more at: http://www.teaclassico.com/cnnp-menghai-tea-factory-7542-2003.html?keyword=2003#sthash.FZJQuGn1.dpuf

This tea has the right balance between a very dry bitterness and a nice mellow warm sweetness, very earthy … some dried red fruits like cherry… good tea.

This 7542 is the real deal. Way better option than young ridiculously priced teas.

Oh my, yes it WAS. Can’t resist a Big Zhong. Bought 20 grams of this, and cakes are available for $129. We are getting to the point now where aged tea is really more affordable than the high end new stuff. 8 grams in the gaiwan and 125 ml water.

Still steeping this a day later. The liquor is mostly orange, but a darker red ring shows around the edge of my cup. This is really just turning into aged tea, the next few years will be quite interesting. According to the description, the cakes were stored in HK a few years, and then dry stored after that. There is a slight humid flavor, however much of the tea I’m drinking lately is much more humid than this is. A bit of smoke, but not much.

Great deal on an aged plantation cake if it’s your cup of tea.
