Hello, and Daughters Tea?

Postby LEOSCAT » Nov 22nd, '13, 11:32

I have been lurking for a few months now and thought I would introduce myself and ask a question. I am only a year into my journey with Puerh and am totally hooked. I am trying samples left and right and loving the experience. I enjoy the Raw Pu so much more. The variety and complexity of sheng is a joy. I have picked up a few cakes, Tuos and bricks along the way. I can admit, I enjoy a 2010 Bulang and other young teas on a regular basis. I am buying the older cakes I find I enjoy along the way and putting them away, but I am more into enjoying what I have today vs collecting. You never know where your path will lead or how much time we have to enjoy it.
Thank you for the knowledge and experiences you all share!
Soooo much to learn. I can't wait :D

On to the question.... I did a search on "Daughters Tea" but came up empty. Does anyone have anything to share on their experiences with it? From my understanding, it uses first rate Menghai Sheng? It's on my list to try asap.

Thanks for the time and patience,
Lisa

Is this the cake? The description seams rather silly.

"The best raw tea from Menghai in 2007. Daughter's tea is the highest grade in Pu-erh, tips of leaves were picked by young girls at spring season. This cake is made with aged buds, special prescription for 2007 Guangzhou Tea Expo and it was names as the 2007 tea affair memorial cake. A must try product from Menghai factory."

I havent seen anyone posting about this cake so i'm curious why your so interested in it? I haven't tried it but i suspect there are many better options for young tea for $90.

(and the one you listed).
I would try samples first on a more expensive cake I have no experience with.
I am just expanding my sheng experiences, and haven't found any info on this particular cake.

Ya, $90 for any semi recent Dayi is most likely farcical

The Menhai 08 looked interesting.

How so? It looks rather boring and unremarkable to me. Have you tried 7542, 7532 or 8582 yet? If you haven't yet than i suggest sampling some since thats what Dayi is known for. Their much older cakes are tasty but not cheap but than again their new teas are rather expensive for what they are.

I haven't tried this cake yet but to me this one looks much nicer than that Daughters Tea and it's only $9/cake more.

The Yu Run correctly translates as "Jade luster"
