Golden Gong Ting - 2005
We are proud to present to you yet another pu’er tea we sourced while in China in 2008! This is an exceptional ripe tea…so much so, that several of our customers are praying we never run out and tend to hoard it.
Picked young in the spring of 2005, this hand-processed ripe tea is rich and thick in body with a slightly toasty aroma. you’ll find hints of caramel and sugar left behind in the cup. We love how this tea sweetens up in the latter infusions.
While most ripe teas are pile processed, this one-of-a-kind tea is ripened in very small hand-crafted batches over a period of 120 days. One of the finest we’ve ever encountered, we bought all that we could and have it expertly stored as we do all our pu’er teas!
Enjoy this one while we have it. It won’t be around forever.
We recommend very short infusion times to begin with. This leaf is power-packed and trust us, you won’t want to miss out on the flavors that come out in the early, short infusions.
