75

I bought this tea (together with a 2010 7572) I think in 2018 from someone who had bought it on a trip to China. The price was good for me, around 35$ for the two cakes.

I don’t really know what to think about it. It has some nice fruity aspects and some smoke and bitterness. Also it seems to be acquiring some warming basement-like aromas, which I like. Not sure if those were already there when I bought it. But this tea isn’t really sweet and also the texture is pretty thin. The brew has a typical orange color of semi-aged pu-erh.

Yeah, there is no sweetness to be found in this recipe. Your description of this younger tea sounds pretty similar to mine with a 2003: https://steepster.com/derk/posts/402887

I actually like it a lot more now. Lots of fruitiness, nice thick body, good semi-aged aromas. Not really sweet still, but I acually like the dryness. It seems like it has gradually opened up.

I still like the 7532’s opposed to the 7542’s. They are also a bit cheaper on the budget as well.
