Description

October 19th, 2019

Here's some 1601 (first batch of 2016) Dayi 8582 I've had in the warehouse for just under two years (since November 2017)! This tea has aged wonderfully. This is the first Dayi 8582 I've ever tried, but I've had both traditionally stored and dry stored CNNP 8582 (both of which I offer here on the site). This 8582 was a real surprise after the others I've had. While the dry cake itself isn't very aromatic, I got surprisingly sweet aromatics from the dry leaf when dropped into a preheated teapot. I've definitely never had sweet aromatics from the much older CNNP versions I've had, so it's possible these aromatics will fade with age.

After the rinse, the aroma was also surprisingly sweet. No camphor whatsoever in this stuff! There are some aged notes and light smoke from the rinsed leaf in the teapot.

In the cup, I was surprised by how full and complex the flavor of the liquor was. There is a lovely wildflower flavor, light bitterness, and hongcha notes. The overall profile is much sweeter than a 7542 of similar age, which I definitely did not expect. I got a hint of grape (Merlot wine?) in the liquor. The bitterness later translates to sweetness after the swallow (ku wei). There is still astringency and bitterness in the material, but it is tolerable, and this tea will continue to get smoother with time (I can't wait to see how it turns out down the line)! I think using slightly cooler water (92-95 Celsius) would make for an easier tea drinking experience than at full boil.

The leaf quality is excellent. Please note the leaf looks more aged in reality than it does in the picture!

This is a lovely tea, and you won't find a 2016 1601 Dayi 8582 that was naturally stored in HK for sale anywhere else! This tea has aged very well, but still has plenty of complexity and punch left for the years ahead. I'm offering this tea now for those who'd like to try this tea for comparison purposes against an older 8582, or perhaps to compare against one that was stored in cooler, dryer conditions (e.g, Guangdong dry storage or Kunming dry storage).

Please note I only purchased a single tong of this tea in 2017, so if you'd like to purchase this tea, don't hesitate!
