Description

July 27th, 2021

These tuos were purchased in November 2019, and I've had them aging in my very own warehouse in Hong Kong ever since! My particular microclimate moves teas along very rapidly, without any excessive humidity, and is definitely very different from anything else out there. Purchasing these tuos from a different storage environment will almost certainly make for a very different experience in the cup.

These tuos initially smelled like 2017 Dayi Golden Needle White Lotus when I checked one out in the warehouse, likely due to the high ratio of gongting on the tuo. It could even be that some of the same gongting material was used for these tuos!

The fermentation level on these tuos is relatively light, as is popular nowadays, and makes for a very interesting session. The liquor is chocolate and date dominant, and there is still some thickness to the liquor here that hasn't receded yet. The liquor is also slippery on the swallow, which is very pleasant. This is a very smooth tea with great flavor, and all of the original pile fermentation aroma is now long gone. This tea is, however, very active due to my storage, so the 'fermentation' smell all of my shou teas seem to have this year is due to high biological activity. Ripe pu erh very much continues to actively post-ferment given the right conditions.

The lower fermentation level means there is still some bitterness in this material when pushed hard, but it makes for an interesting cup. I even got hints of surprising residual florality, which I almost never find in shou. This is a great ripe, and unique from anything else I've tried from Dayi, which was unexpected. It's amazing what Dayi can achieve with their blending prowess!

Only seven tuos left!
