Description

August 2018: Please note quantities of this cake are limited, and there is keen interest in purchasing this tea! Please don't hesitate if you want this cake as I don't know how long they'll be around!

This cake has been through clean and controlled Guangdong dry storage: this cake was aged conservatively and I really like where it's at now. This cake smells like a Changtai production, but has the intense aroma of a CNNP or Dayi 75XX cake.

There is lots of flavor to this tea in the first infusion. It has the wildflower notes of a good 7542, a hint of aged out residual smoke, and lovely huigan and cha qi. This is a very clean and smooth tea with very tolerable astringency and bitterness considering how full the flavor is. The material is a little choppy for a Changtai, which tend to be whole-leaf cakes (this 7538 is nowhere near as choppy as a 7532 from the early 2000s). This is really an excellent value cake. The surface has lots of lovely tips! This cake is certified organic to Chinese government standards as well. This really is a nice alternative to a Dayi 7532!
 

In the second infusion, I get lots of aged notes. This tea is different from both CNNP 7532 and 7542, but there are similarities. There is an almost sweet corn-like flavor to this tea that I've never experienced before. It is a background note that is actually quite pleasant. The wildflower note is lovely, and there are definite aged sheng notes here as well. I brewed the second infusion for a long while and there is definitely more bitterness and astringency if pushed too hard, but the huigan is really something else with this tea, and the flavor lingers as well. I really like this tea and the way it's been aged! I'd gladly tong up on this for long term storage!
