I have only brewed one session of it and my conclusion in the notes is simply: "Good shu, nothing extraordinary, but good
." With only one session to go by, that opinion may change, but I tend feel that most shu is pretty similar. I also tend to like the darker, heavier ones more than the lighter subtle ones. I love the 2007 Haiwan 9908 Old Nugget Puerh Tea Brick
which I got from Puerhshop where it is now out of stock. I have ordered another one from Scott, however, who does still have it in stock. Another nice one is Wesli's discovery of 2000 Big Golden Melon Tuocha
, also now out of stock at Puerhshop.
I have been reviewing the several Menghai
shu that I bought last year (#0536 (yr 2005 and 2007)
, #7562 (yr 2005)
, and 2005 Golden Needle White Lotus
) and beginning to think that I don't care that much for the Menghai products. This is especially disappointing because it was their excellent rep that prompted me to buy them. Oh well, my tastes change and the tea changes. Maybe we will meet in a good place at some time in the future.
Thanks for asking my opinion. It sounds like Tree may have more experience with this mini cake. If he doesn't respond in the thread, PM him to wake him up.
