Description

This is the first cake I've tried from PuZiWei, and I must say I'm extremely impressed! Danke schön to Lobster in Germany for suggesting I try this cake. I hadn't heard of Nanpo when he brought this cake up, but it is a village in Mengku town that is considered part of Bingdao. This village isn't yet quite as hyped as Bingdao new village, of course, or you wouldn't be able to get this cake at this price point!

After a month in Hong Kong, this cake really opened up for me and I get incredible sweet aromatics of peach, apricot and complex wildflower under the fruit notes. The top sweet aromatic notes remind me of peach candy! This is an intensely aromatic tea with surprisingly powerful cha qi. While it is clean and smooth, there is tolerable astringency and bitterness here. I detected cantaloupe and date in this tea when I first tried it, but when I tried it again a month after arrival, the cantaloupe wasn't detectable (in a 100ml Purion pot). The 100ml purion brought out more astringency, bitterness and body, and the peach note was more dominant than apricot, but I also used a higher ratio of 8g/100ml vs 10g/150 in Ruyao stoneware. 


This cake is an outstanding deal for a sweet, surprisingly complex young sheng daily drinker. I don't know how these cakes will age at this stage, of course, but this is definitely a great tea now, especially at this price point!

The artwork on the wrapper is also incredible, and was a big selling point for me, even though I don't usually fall for that kind of thing. This cake has absolutely surpassed my expectations. The tea is as good as the wrapper, which definitely isn't always the case!

I only have a single tong of this tea on hand, and will not ship until the tea has had sufficient time to wake back up (about a month) in my warehouse!
