Yee On Tea Co.

2009 Menghai Purple Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake (7342H)

$ 200 HKD
A new release at our retail store after post-fermentation at our professional warehouse for past 11 years, this 2009 7342H Chi Tse Beeng Cha packaged in an eye-catching yellow, and purple hue has captured our retail customer's attention recently.

Masterfully controlled in the fermentation process, the raw leaves have fermented to a half-ripe stage during pile-fermentation giving this tea a uniquely alternate taste. This Pu-erh has the smoothness of a Ripe Pu-erh, yet retaining the fragrance and Cha Hi of a Raw Pu-erh. Just the perfect combination of both.

Great taste and excellent value, no wonder our customer's been coming back to buy tongs!

Very enjoyable

Despite rarely drinking shou, I bought a cake due to positive reviews and because I generally like the storage of Yee On's sheng puerh.

To my surprise, I love this tea: it really does have the smoothness of shou while retaining some complexity and higher notes I'd normally associate with sheng, with a particular dank sweetness. I ordered 3 more cakes of this and have branched out into trying other Yee On shous, though this one so far remains my favorite. At this price, especially, it's very much worth trying.

Great value

For its price range, it’s hard to find much better shu cha. Great daily drinker.

Raw or ripe, that is the question.

Obviously ripe however this is the tea to drink when you can't decide on Raw or ripe! The undercurrent of a raw with the comfort and evolved round smoothness of a ripe.
Very enjoyable and is a successful attempt at expressing its intent.
Certainly the next tea you should blind buy.
