I have not tried this yet so I am cheating as this is not really a tasting note HOWEVER
I have added this to my cupboard because I do believe this is what I purchased at an Asian shop in St. Louis.
The Tea Company I know is correct.
The packaging looks identical.
HOWEVER I find no DATE on mine.
If anyone has advice on how to find the date to be sure this is in fact what I have please let me know.
Otherwise I have to assume this is it since it looks right and is the only one like this I find here under this company.
Then again I suppose the company could have others LIKE it that are not yet added.
I am a bit “iffy” about trying it.
The gunpowder green I got from this shop is very nice but with Puerh I tend to be skeptical!
Especially since I got a 350g in a nice box (reminds me of fireworks) for only 6.49!!


That picture shows a CNNP wrapper, not a Menghai Dayi wrapper. There are alot of counterfeit teas. $6.49 for a 357 gram beeng likely means a poor tea, labeled with a fake wrapper. They are everywhere in China.


I feared that. The marking in the middle – The green – its not centered properly as if it was printed cheaply. Bummer. It smells pretty decent but who knows what the heck is in it! LOL


And thank you Garret!


no, thank you!!!! :) I had a couple come in here once that had been sold a cake for over $100. They had had a good experience buying it, so I never told them that they had been swindled. You couldn’t have paid me to drink that tea. They weren’t going to drink it… for them it was just a decoration with a good story behind it.


Aweee well you can’t put a price on a great experience or a good story. :)

good range with the initial saltiness, silken texture in the middle, and sweetness that lingers in the aftertaste. Walker Tea Review 290. Score = 92
