2006 Sheng Pu Erh 357g tea cake
2006 Yiwu Zhengshan Sheng Pu Erh (357g Chabing)
Yiwu Zhengshan means the mountain of Yiwu (not the surrounding areas near the mountain).
The main highlight of this Pu Erh tea is that it is an example of a very well aged, very cleanly aged Sheng Pu Erh. It's one of the purest sweetness and silkiness in a Sheng Pu Erh we've tasted as a team.
This pu erh tea is made from Gushu, ancient tea trees in Mahei Village in the Yiwu Mountains where Pu Erh tea is crowned as the Queen of Pu Erh for its gentleness, smoothness and sweetness. You could understand this reputation with this 2006 Yiwu Sheng Pu Erh. The smooth tea liquor leaves a soothing feeling after sliding down the throat, and the fruity sweetness of ripe tree fruit is unmissable even for beginner tea drinkers.
Dry Leaf Flavor: woody, dried fruits, such as dried peach and dried apricot
Wet Leaf Flavor: woody and minty like a wet camphor tree or pine, spicy, fruity like apricot

This tea is light and well rounded, with delicious woody and sweet notes. I find it a bit too light, though, maybe because I usually drink younger shengs. I use 7g/100ml and get 6 to 8 good infusions, so it’s not exactly cheap.
