2005 CNNP Blue Mark: Interesting Enough Complexities
This 2005 CNNP Blue Mark is from the a Malaysian Dry Natural Storage Colours of Malaysia Quarter Cake Set from TeasWeLike. It also is being
offered as a stand alone 357g cakes for $188.00 or $0.52/g. I found it a bit unique, complex, and interesting.
Dry leaf has a dry distant woody odour and seems to be cover in a fine white dust I’m not sure if it’s the wrapper or mould? Either way doesn’t stop me…
First infusion has a creamy sweet watery almost woody taste in a wet mouthfeel. There is a faint powdery talc creamy sweetness throughout. The mouthfeel is wet but has a bit of fine silty dryness.
Second has a woody teak woody onset with a creamy sweet layer underneath. The sweetness is the talc creamy almost cherry. The sweetness returns almost grape and the mouthfeel has a bit of pucker but very faintly. Nice grape sweetness into the throat. There is a silty mouthfeel and open throat. With a stick roof and gums. Nice slowing Qi.
Third infusion has a woody creamy talc sweetness with a silty gripping mouthfeel. There are subtle almost trap sweet notes when swallowing in the throat. Senses are a touch more sensitive with a bit of slow motion Qi.
Fourth infusion has a bit of a smoky woody watery onset with less talc sweetness hardly any now. There is a bit of bitterness and a flatter slight gripping mouthfeel. Teeth, gums, roof feel squeaky dry. A bit sense enhancing.
5th has a water woody slight talc creamy sweetness. There is a silty dry mouthfeel with a bit gripping. I take a sigh with subtle soft sense enhancements.
6th is a watery talc woody creamy sweet. Dry woody slight sweet finish. Dry silty finish. Deep sighs with visual acuity heightened.
7th is a good 30 min steeping. It comes out woody and silty not sweet not bitter but smooth with a faint incense finish.
8th is an overnight Thermos steeping and is oily slippery with a viscous sweetness and subtle woody taste. The sweetness has a sugary almost pastry taste to it. Nice an oily feeling.
This is pretty easy to drink with a nice smoothness to it and Qi that is much better than standard factory fare. It has a bit of mind slowing and sense enhancements Qi. The mouthfeel is really good with four different stimulations playing out in the mouth- squeaky gums and roof, silty texture, and nice mouthwatering oily viscus and some mild throat gripping stimulating. The sweetness is similarly complex with a talc creamy sweetness, grape like returning sweetness and a pastry sugar sweetness in the overnight steepings. The thickness and pastry taste reminds me of ManZhuan. For the price this interesting blend has lots to offer and I had a great time with it! Thinking about testing out a full cake in the speed test.
Edit Nov27/23: I had this one a few weeks later and it has this nice bitter coco and lubricating feeling. It reminds me lots of 7542 504… I should compare these.
