(2001 Yesheng Ripe Puer)
This tea is a good choice for those looking for great value in terms of price-quality relationship. It also has a considerable age of 22 years!
I used 4.37 grams/89 ml shuping pot to brew this one. You can steep it ten times at least.
It’s worth noting that the post-fermentation taste in this tea has completely subsided. Additionally, the hot and humid storage conditions have resulted in a distinct Camphor taste and aroma profile
The tea soup starts dark due to its storage, then gets redder (see the pitcher picture above) as the tea loses its strength.
I pushed the tea and did not get any bitterness out of it. The astringency is very low.
The tea gives a warming feeling to the stomach. It also has a creamy soup and nice sweet huigan that cause one to produce a decent amount of salivation.
The tea storage is clean. It has no off-flavours. But if you prefer drier storage, you can choose our 2017 Mengku Chatou Ripe Puer Tea, the 2019 Haiwan Anniversary Ripe Puer or the 2020 “Fengming” Gushu Ripe Puer (Lit. Phoenix Cry), which were all stored in Kunming for the most part.
The tea storage is clean with no off-flavours detected. However, for those who prefer a drier storage option, we recommend our 2017 Mengku Chatou Ripe Puer Tea, 2019 Haiwan Anniversary Ripe Puer, or 2020 “Fengming” Gushu Ripe Puer (also known as Phoenix Cry), all of which were primarily stored in Kunming.
