Blend recipe is according to the benchmark tea "7542" as an updated version here in Haiwan tea factory.
Tightly pressed cake with roundness.
Honey like fragrance with wild mountain flavor.
Bitterness and astringency are not so strong as young tea.
Huigan (returning sweetness) is strong.
Saliva producing comes like wave one after another.
Long lingering tea flavor in mouth.
Total taste flavor characters seem like tea from PaSha tea region where Haiwan tea factory has own tea plantation in Menghai region.
Guangzhou natural storage.
First new cake from the first whole tong of tea that I liked enough and could afford to buy, the 2007 LaoTongZhi 7548 701 from King Tea Mall. Been stored loosely wrapped in a cool, dark closet, and is drinking beautifully. Truly, a poor man's 7542.
Buy this one if you are looking for inexpensive but well stored tea with some age.
