Description

This is a new tea from a Hong Kong family who still handles traditional storage pu erh: the process is very much dying out here since many companies switched to dry storage in the mid-2000s after the 88 qing bing shook up the market so drastically. I am happy to continue purchasing this family's tea, since their style of warehousing is excellent and they only offer limited amounts of tea they warehouse themselves! I don't know how much of this is left in their inventory, and neither do the family, so if you want one or more cakes, please get some while the getting is good!

I was originally looking for a 7542 to replace the 2003-2005 traditional storage 7542 (from another vendor) which I offered here on the site. Well, I cleared the previous dealer's inventory of traditional storage 7542 out, and they now only have dry (HK natural) storage 7542 for sale! While excellent, I know a lot of people prefer HK traditional storage sheng, and this might well help scratch that itch!

The quality of material on this cake looks truly excellent, so I was quite excited to try this tea. After two rinses (I used 80s HK market Factory 1 zini), there was detectable storage flavor in the cup, but it wasn't overwhelming by any means. The liquor in the first infusion was smooth with surprising thickness, mild, pleasant bitterness andnd long lasting huigan. The liquor was also much lighter than I'd expect for HK traditionally stored sheng from this dealer, which was a surprise, and the storage itself also tasted slightly different from their other offerings (but it's still very distinctly one of their teas). The liquor is remarkably smooth with powerful calming energy!

The second infusion had no storage flavor left to it at all: it was just smooth, thick and pleasant. I noticed the huigan more in the second infusion, and the powerful calming cha qi kept coming! 


In the third infusion, I realized the liquor genuinely felt like syrup, which is not something I expected at all! This is a really lovely tea and unlike any other traditional storage sheng I've ever had. While the traditional storage process will knock down aromatics, there are other characteristics that very much shine through, and this is a very good example of how different a traditional storage sheng can be from another, even from the same warehouse!

I'm continuing with this tea the next morning and the calming effect is still very pronounced. I knew last night that I absolutely had to have one of these cakes for my own consumption before the family runs out (most likely because of you guys)! Please don't miss out on this limited offering because once it's gone, it's gone!
