"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 figured I'd give it a shot, but really it needs a few more years of aging. Drinkable, but not superb.
