Description

This Dayi 0712 cake was is composed of a high proportion of gongting (grade 1) material. Gongting material is the tips of a pu erh tea bush or tree, and is the most aromatic and potent material produced by a plant (and the most expensive). This cake was only produced in 2007, and has aged beautifully over the four years I've had it in my possession. 


In summer 2018, this cake was actively fermenting in my dry storage cabinet at home and the aroma wasn't as intense as it is now, in December 2018. I was shocked at how much aroma and flavor came to the forefront once the tea had a chance to cool down and dry out some in the cooler part of the year. There is a clear wildflower note from the cake that is very clearly present in the cup. While this cake is composed of the Menghai plantation material used for most Dayi productions, the use of gongting material in this cake makes it much more complex and aromatic than a 7542 or 8582, and this cake is a real surprise in that regard. 

Natural storage in my home means this tea is more aromatic and pleasant than it would be from controlled Guangdong warehouse storage, but nowhere near as humid as traditional storage. There are no humid-tasting notes in this cake whatsoever. While the dry leaf smells smokey in a warm teapot, only a hint of aged-out smoke is present in the liquor. 

This is an excellent tea with wider complexity and more high notes than you'd expect from a Dayi production. This is a great example of what different leaf grades from the same plantation can do for a pu erh tea cake, and I am really surprised at how good this tea is and how well it's aged. I only have one cake from my personal stash, but I'm putting up three 100g portions since one of my regulars said he wanted to try this very interesting tea!
