I bought a new cake today, haven’t done that for a while other than that one extra cake I sent out for tasting.
I went to Tianshan Tea City today after going to a talk by some professor. It was held in the vicinity of the tea city, so I figured I’ll stop by there before eating dinner.
I wandered a bit, and ended up in a puerh store I’ve never really looked at before. I unwrapped all their cakes and decided to taste the one Yiwu they had. I think it’s good… definitely has notes that I’d recognize as old tree, although perhaps a little less powerful than I wanted. But then I inquired about the price… and it was a very attractive price. Too attractive, almost. I tasted another tea, a Nannuo, and it was almost double the price of the Yiwu, yet not really quite as good, in my opinion. So I ended up taking two of the Yiwus home. I might go back and buy a whole tong… still giving it some thought. There’s a possibility that this tea is not pure old tree, but has some younger stuff mixed in, but the taste is quite right — unmistakable Yiwu.
So here’s some pictures for you to look at.
