2007 Yi Pin Tang “Yi Wu Zhi Chun” Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake Review

Today I am reviewing 2007 Yi Pin Tang “Yi Wu Zhi Chun” raw puer tea, obtained through Yunnan Sourcing.

Sadly, they sent me a lot of loose material, and only one piece of solid tea cake.

Tea Review

I used exactly 7 grams of material using standard bottled water in a small Yixing teapot.

Gave it 2 rinses, once for 10 seconds, and then once for 5 seconds.

First Steep

Steeped for 20 seconds.

Brews a golden-amber orange.

The texture feels quite smooth and lubricating, although not particularly thick.

Some moderate astringency, and a light note of lemon, upon a background of autumn leaves.

Second Steep

Steeped for 25 seconds.

A little stronger in flavor, with damp forest tree notes.

The storage seems relatively clean on this tea.

Third Steep

Steeped for 30 seconds.

The mineral notes are strong here, like wet granite.

I still detect a slight lemon ester note in the flavor profile, and it seems to linger a while.

Flavor notes: Autumn leaves, lemon ester, damp forest, wet granite.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
