- Very pure tasting Yiwu
- Declared “from 700 years old trees”
- Full intense flavour, deep calming Qi
- Hot+dry taiwanese storage
Tastes and feels purer (eg: more single garden origin) than the 03 CYH Yiwu, and better in almost any way to most of the various 04-05-06 CYH Yiwu.
This is by far the best autumn tea I ever had, make what you want about the trees age claim (as usual), but this tea is definitely extraordinary both in terms of taste and Qi, with considerable depth and refined strength in both aspects.
Because of its single origin it’s a delicate and refined tea despite the good aging, I suggest keeping lid off for the first part of the session.
Collection tea sold in a 6-cakes tong (seen for over £1000 per cake in Taiwan), we only have 3 cakes in total for sale (possibly one more). Like the 04 CYH Song Pin Hao, it has the same storage and same rare status, we can’t get anymore after sold out (I imagine pretty quickly).
Approx. 357g cakes, available as 1/4 slice (approx. 85g) and sample too.
Nick Martin –
Immaculate aged Puerh. Clean aromas, heady and expressive with aromatic wood notes, spice and background camphor. Complex full, ripe flavours, persistent, absolutely top drawer. Calming and intense.
