Description

This is a remake of a classic Kunming Tea Factory raw pu erh recipe by Zhongcha that was released in 2007. Zhongcha did a lot of remakes in the 2000s, and they stepped up their packaging to compete with the big private companies (Dayi in particular). They're putting out much fancier productions today (at very high price points). Some of their 2006 productions have appreciated greatly, but there are still quite a few 2007 Zhongcha cakes that I believe are undervalued.


This particular sheng was processed with air dryers instead of by hand in woks, which is something a lot of the larger factories were starting to do in the mid-2000s. Kunming Tea Factory, once the government of China's premier tea factory, was also experimenting with new technology at this time, and the neipiao on this cake proudly proclaims it was made with early spring Bulang material with a good number of tips, that was then 'autoclaved.' 

This tea has aged well. The neipiao says this cake has fresh aromatics and good huigan. The fresh flavors have definitely aged down with time. I get aged book notes, some light but deep wildflower (more pronounced in summer: now in the cooler, dryer part of the year, I don't taste the deep wildflower character as much), and very good huigan and calming cha qi. This is a really good value and will continue to age into an evermore pleasant, old-school style sheng! I only have a single tong of this sheng that I've been aging since March 2019. I hope to get more of this tea in to age for the long haul as I think this material shows great promise!
