Slightly damaged wrapper & cakes at a great price!
Our bad luck is your reward!
The 7542 Raw cake is probably the most legendary, collectible and faked recipe released by Dayi. Jan 2018 we received a case of 2011 Menghai Tea Factory (Dayi) 7542 Batch 103 cakes. Unfortunately my shipper in Guangzhou neglected to protect the cakes properly. As per pictures most cakes have small tears on the wrapper and an average 25g of tea shaved off the edges lying loose within the wrapper creating these curiously shaped cakes. We would normally market this tea for £48.50 per cake. Grab a bargain at our expense. samples of 100g/50g/20g will not be affected. The cakes having rested in Guangdong since 2011 in dry storage were purchased via an official Dayi dealer in Guangdong. The Guangdong storage has turned the leaf a dull brown and pushed the leaf well down the track of aging. Bitterness is still apparent but somewhat muted. The broth is a turning orange. The taste is deep with sweetness setting in. Later steeps will offer more fruity/nectar aroma and flavour with fruity aftertaste!
