Our 2021 Da Yi 7572 Qizi Pu-erh ripe tea cake is made by the Da Yi Menghai Tea Factory. In 1973, the artificial fermentation technology of Pu-erh tea was successfully developed by the factory. With the continuous maturity of the technology, in 1975, Da Yi 7572 was produced for the first time. Since then Da Yi 7572 is recognised as the most classic Ripe Pu-erh tea cake or even the standard/benchmark of Pu-erh ripe tea by the public even the Pu-erh material markets have been developing for decades. The taste of Da Yi Pu-erh 7572 is still considered as a classic.

The Da Yi 7572 has a lot more production batches compared with other Pu-erh tea cakes before of its crazily high demand. The batch number of our Da Yi 7572 is 2101.

What is 7572?

 7572 is its serial number. The serial number of Pu-erh cakes has a special meaning. The first two numbers refer to the tea formula used. The third number refers to the grade of tea material used – the smaller the better. The last number indicates a particular tea factory.

Therefore, for this tea cake, the ‘75’ means the formula of the tea cake was developed in the 1975 year. ‘7’ means the grade of the tea leaves is level ‘7’ and ‘2’ means it is produced by the Menghai Tea Factory.

Pu-erh made from more delicate tea materials would taste fresher because it is rich in amino acids, and the best Pu-erh is rich in health-supporting substances and strong in flavour. However, it is important to know that Pu-erh made from higher grades of tea is not necessarily better or more expensive. Pu-erh made from lower-grade tea materials could also have a very aggressive aroma which is attractive to many tea lovers. The aroma of Pu-erh would get stronger when it is aged. When aged, lower-grade of Pu-erh can taste much better than the new and high-grade Pu-erh, and of course, aged Pu-erh will normally be more expensive.
