Happy New Year 2017.
I opened a 2004 CNNP raw pu erh cake to welcome the new year. I had purchased this cake last month In Malaysia while I was at the tea expo. There is a red chop on the wrapper indicating the pu erh is composed of wild harvested puerh. I had never seen this cake before and it was even more intriguing that the inner label or neofei is a yellow mark 'cha' which is different from the outer wrapper which showed a green 'cha'.
I was surprisingly impressed with this tea when I unwrapped the 357g cake. I bought this cake without sampling and the cake gave off a strong camphor, old book leather scent. This tea brews very strong. I enjoy old pu erh that brews strong and heavy in aroma. I could detect mild sweaty and slightly intoxicating sensations. This cake is well stored in Malaysia; a clean and dry cake. A lucky buy in that I purchased a couple of these cakes without sampling.
But I digress. I am grateful to everyone that supported my online tea store that I opened in July 2016. The response was extremely gratifying. Thank you. I had noted your feedbacks and I will 'put out more tea, new and old especially the obscure ones as well'. I will be introducing next week 2 raw pu erh which I enjoy very much. Thank you once again and Happy New Year 2017.
