1998 Gan Xiang Jiu Yun Raw Pu-erh Cake 400g
Gan Xiang Jiu Yun : sweet aftertaste and lingering charm
This 400g aged raw puerh cake is little bit rare and interesting. Using Yunnan large leaf tea harvested in the late 1990s as material and storing in cool, dry place about 6 or 7 years. In 2004, some Kunming tea businessmen found this tea in Lincang, after two years – 2006, they made the tea into 400g cakes and 250g bricks. The material is not select – leaves with long stalks. Open the cake, the leaf surface is shiny and smooth, that’s a good sign, it means the tea is rich in pectin. The taste is very unique for raw puerh tea, a bit like 1990s aged oolong. Flavor of raisins and some dried fruits, sweet with comfortable aftertaste, the liquor has very nice orange brown color. Maybe loose leaves kept for a long time and later pressed to cake caused the taste so unique and different from other aged raw puerh tea. What a magical fusion!
