2003-2005 HK Traditional Storage CNNP 7542

by jayinhk » Jun 6th 16 10:45 am

This is the best traditional storage sheng I've ever had. The storage is what it should be--accelerated aging without leaving the tea with nothing but storage aromas. The character of the 7542 is what you get, with a light hint of storage. Some storage is excessively humid, but this tea could even pass for humid HK dry storage! The tea is sold wrapped in plastic and still has the CNNP "cha" nei fei, but no wrapper. This is great old school 7542 and mild and smooth enough that I could drink it every day. The bitterness has muted down to almost nothing, and the tea still tastes like wildflowers to me, like good sheng should, IMO.

This tea easily performs like twenty-year-old+ sheng.

$28 for 50g, $196 for a cake and shipping is $10 per 50g. $2 additional for each 50g. I'd be happy to combine purchases of different tea types if you're interested in the 2013 dancong, three stamp shuixian, superior shuixian or high fire tieguanyin I have up for sale here in TeaSwap!

Sign me up for 100g of this + 100g of the TGY. So that would be:

7542: 28*2 + 10 + 2 = 68
TGY: 18*2 + 10 + 2 = 48

But I can combine the shipping?

Great, thank you! Yes, shipping would be $16 total! I am headed to Yunnan for a week, though, and won't be able to ship until I get back. I have enough tea on hand for you, so if you PayPal me then I can ship ASAP when I get back!

Chip, I'm in the process of setting up as a vendor. Not there yet but how do I go about it so I'm TeaChat approved?
