Twelve Cent Brick
This is a 250g CNNP (Zhongcha) raw puerh brick produced in 2004. It has been stored entirely in Taiwan and has a relatively dry natural Taiwan storage. The tea has a clear sweetness, a bit of old school smokiness, a decent thickness, and good punch and energy. No dankness or wet storage notes. The material is mostly full, robust leaves, not chopped, and interestingly the brick appears to have quite a few seed pods included. We have been looking for more good examples of affordable sheng puerh with some age — enjoy this brick at twelve cents a gram, that will be the price until it sells out! The red sticker was applied to hide a misprint on the wrapper.
