This tea is crafted using early spring materials picked from arbor trees located across three different tea mountains: Yu Shou, Ba Da, and Bu Lang.
The blend recipe was created by Mr. Zou Bingliang, the founder of Haiwan Tea Factory and former CEO of Menghai Tea Factory.
The aged tea threads are dark with large tea buds, covered in multiple golden tea hairs.
The tea liquor is clear and bright. It exhibits minor or almost no bitterness and astringency.
The flavor is rich, smooth, and mellow. The tastes are well-balanced and thick.
Both the Huigan (returning sweetness) and saliva production are notably good.
The lingering aftertastes are quite enjoyable, with a sweetness reminiscent of mountain spring water.
This tea can be seen as an upgraded version of the traditional 7542 from Menghai Tea Factory or 7548 from Mr. Zou’s own tea factory.
Highly recommended for those seeking to enhance their tea experience.
Naturally stored in Guangzhou, this tea has been carefully aged to enrich its distinctive qualities.
This is a nicely aged cake and a good example of a factory production. The taste is sort of resembling 7542, being dark, woodsy, with bits of dark fruitiness. The wood in taste can be perceived as slightly smoky, but not to the degree I would find excessive or unpleasant. Overall, taste is good, although not exactly surprising or unusual in any way.
Mouthfeel is thick and active; there is very nice huigan and overall feeling coming from the tea. I would say the smoothness of the tea and the transition from taste to aftertaste and huigan is a highlight of this tea.
Pricing is appropriate and the price could probably go a bit higher and still be good.
