"7542" is a series with recipe created first in "1975" year mainly using "4th" 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. (More detailed background info of tea naming, history and Menghai tea factory, please refer to our blog)
With tiny buds covering the surface and fat and strong tea materials as inner body. Aromatic, fruity. Rich tea flavor comes with great Huigan (returning sweetness).
Guangzhou natural storage.
Called as "Benchmark" in puerh raw tea world.
This is my first 7542.
The cake smells surprisingly sweet and nectar-like, almost like an YiWu cake. Nice! :D
The taste is different, to my tongue: More complex, more bitter and astringent - rather rough, which I like.
The mouthfeel is rather rough, too. Not unpleasant, though.
The finish is above average in strength and slightly sweet.
Just my cup of tea - has a lot of character, is a bit off, but not unpleasant.
And it makes me feel good!
The price-value ratio, to me, is OK. I get more than 10 infusions out of a session.
Thanks for the quick delivery!
