2007 EoT Qi Sheng Gu (pressed 2013)


From ancient trees in the same village we made tea from last year. A farmer in the village had been storing this maocha since 2007. It has hints of what was once a slight smokey flavour. This has mellowed and transformed into a very pleasant a camphor/plum character in the tea, with the beginnings of a nice aged flavour. It is very thick in the mouth, with a very long aftertaste. This is our bargain of the year I think. Teas like this at this price don't come around very often.

lovely, clean and relaxing

Review by Lee
For me this tea is everything that's great about old tree raw pu-erh. The feeling of this tea in the mouth is lovely, very smooth and slides down the throat so easily. The taste is dried fruit/burnt sugar and just grows in the mouth with a lovely returning sweetness that induces saliva.
Then there's the wonderful relaxing cha qi. This tea puts me into a very relaxed, contemplative mood. The amount of infusions per pot is amazing, I used 4.5 grams in a 60ml yixing pot and got at least 12! Good bang per buck!
A great tea all round

Great taste & nice qi

Review by Tea Monkey
Where to start? This is my first tea of this quality and I must admit I wish I had stretched the purse strings earlier! So, I normally rate a tea on 4 things:1 the quality of the pressing, 2 the smell of the dry tea 3 the smell of the wet tea and 4 the taste and qi.
Here goes: The quality of the pressing of this bing is very good; you can see whole leaves and buds in the cake and the surface is nice and even. Next the dry smell: not very much going on for my nose here, just nice clean tea and a hint of smoke/camphor. No problems here!
Smell of wet leaves; nice subtle smokiness and dried fruit aroma, lovely. Also practically all the leaves are in tact, another sign of careful processing. Lastly the taste: What to say? Slight camphor background notes and strong plum and sugarcane up front which develops into a lovely sugary sweetness that stays for hours. The cha qi is narcotically relaxing and smooth- no jittery or anxious "high" feeling.
An absolutely fantastic tea at a great price.
If this is the quality of tea I can expect from E of T then I'll be back for more 5 out of 5.

Nice light Pu'erh

Review by Alexander
Thick, a bit of camphor and hints of plume but all the way some (positive) "lightness" about – this is a really nice semi-aged Pu'erh for a good price.

Great stuff!

Review by Danny
I really like this tea, far and away the favourite of all the teas I received recently from Essence of Tea. Thick and quite strong, with a nice fruity flavour and a definite smokiness on the nose. A tea in the Xiaguan stye but better than Xiaguan teas I've tried. Very happy with this one, good price too!
