For the holiday occasion I had some 1996 CNNP "Green Mark Te Ji"
Clean, well aged shu with some sweetness and a good mouthfeel. The taste is nothing extraordinary when compared to younger well done shus that cost 1/10th of it, however it has a very pleasant meditative kind of cha qi of an aged shu that I like a lot. If it's worth $100 for a cake highly depends on the drinker I suppose, but the qi is something I haven't had in younger shu pus.
I also had some 2012 Yunnan Sourcing "Silver Needle Cake" Raw Pu-erh tea
. While it's not really a pu tea, but marketed as such, I'll put my review in here.
It's a nice tea that a sheng drinker should try. I brew it like shengs and it develops over the first couple infusions. The smell is a bit like a black tea (assam, darjeeling or so) and the brew has a slightly buttery / oily consistency with an orange / citrus note to it. Caffeine wise it's rather strong. I prefer it over shengs in the morning right now and will surely buy a couple more of these to see if they age well.
I also tried some 2012 Yunnan Sourcing "Yi Dian Hong" Ripe Pu-erh tea mini cake 1 cake (100 grams)
which tasted rather musty even after 3 infusions so I discarded it. I didn't expect much from a $3.50 mini cake, but it's not really drinkable to me and mini shu pu cakes aren't all that safe to break up with a pu erh knife.
I'll just stock it for a year or two and hope it gets better, but that probably won't be the case.
