"8582" is a series with recipe created first in "1985" year mainly using "8th" grade tea leaf in blended tea materials and initially manufactured by Menghai tea factory represented with serial number "2" during national tea factories in the past history period. A great success on puerh raw blend tea recipe. Another great raw blend recipe. (More detailed background info of tea naming, history and Menghai tea factory, please refer to our blog)
Strong and fat tea threads bring rich tea flavor and taste mixed with classical puerh tea fragrance. Using 3rd and 4th grade tea materials covering the surface and 5th to 8th grade as body and mainly concentrating on 7th to 8th grade. Not quite tightly pressed even with slightly loose edge but that gives advantage on aging speed.
Guangzhou dry and clean storage.
I have enjoyed 9 steeps of this tea now. I use 3 steeps for the “me” size cup I normally drink. This tea has no astringency no harshness and no “bite” at all. This tea brew a light orange/golden color. It has a light citrus aroma. It taste like a very light green tea with the sweetness of honey to it. I found this to be one of the most enjoyable shengs that I have had. Definitely in the top three. I have the newer versions of this cake and hope they age as well. I was really surprised as this is a secondary code 807 of this tea. Very nice. I will probably buy another one of these.
