The “7452” series, first developed in 1974, predominantly uses 5th-grade tea leaves in its blend. It was initially manufactured by the Menghai Tea Factory, which was denoted by the serial number “2” among national tea factories in its historical context. (For more detailed background information on tea naming, history, and the Menghai Tea Factory, please refer to our blog.)
This tea features a well-fermented flavor, characterized by mellowness and thickness. It has a caramel sweetness and a pleasing fragrance.
Naturally stored in Guangzhou, the tea has been carefully aged to enhance its distinctive qualities.
Been drinking lots of sheng lately time for a shou. First infusion very light and mellow no flavor really stood out. Second steep noticeably darker brew. Got semi sweet chocolate and vanilla. I think this is a lighter fermented shou as the flavor is much milder than a comparable 7572 or 7752. Very nice easy to drink.
