Numinous - 7572 Paperless Shou Puerh 1980 1.5 oz
Thick, oily, rich and harmonious, this vintage Shou Puerh has aged beautifully, capturing all the best qualities of aged Shou. One can detect flavors of fermented barley and toasted sugar with a long pleasant sweetness and medium fermentation. The original 7572 recipe is a Menghai classic, setting a taste standard for subsequent shou Puerh. While the factory produces this recipe every year, not every year stands out as superlative. We were very happy to find this cake as it maintains the qualities of the famous original cake from 1975. We were able to get it at a reasonable price only because the wrapper had been damaged and removed over the years. Any experienced tea drinker can verify the authenticity, however. A rare treasure for Shou Puerh lovers.
"I have been a tea connoisseur for about 20 years now. When I first started, it was very difficult to get high-quality teas in America. With the recent explosion, many new options are available. I have tried several. After having tried Living Tea, I will order from no one else. Their teas, especially the aged varieties, are beyond compare. I cannot recommend him highly enough!"
