My Grand Plan for Leftover Samples

Postby Rdeitz » Jun 1st, '14, 22:36

This may be a terrible idea, but hey, there's not much to lose. I'm going to empty all my leftover samples into a paper bag, as they come in for the year. By the end of the year, I'll have a mix of lots of different shengs. Sort of like a house blend. I will leave out any bad tasting ones. It will be an experiment. :lol:
Will they balance put into a decent blend? Will it just taste like a bad mix? Who knows...

I also have four tins worth of mixed sheng. Filling one up each year for the past four years. I think there was a post about this before maybe a year or two ago on here.

It sort of depends on your samples' quality, but usually the more things you dump in it the more the tea approaches generic factory tasting tea

Last year I took all powder and broken leaves from about 100 different open sheng cakes and bricks from 2000-2012, 3+kg , to Menghai and in the factory ask for some 1kg bricks pressed for me.
Now after one year when I read this topic, I try one the brick today first time. Is very nice. Strong (broken leaves), but very nice. I guess after 10 years can be this tea pretty nice.

Blending different puerhs is something I have been meaning to try but haven't gotten around to.
