This is a great young pu’er.
I feel it could mature more but a great starting point with notes of leather and berry.
There is also a buttered toast element growing here.
A great starter Shu!
Four Leaves Ripe
We are proud to offer our very own ripe pu’er tea! We (and our customers) are very happy with the finished product. While we love this tea now, we can hardly wait to see what 2 or 3 more years of aging will bring to the flavor of this tea!
The four leaves used in our ripe tea are from the Jinggu Tea Factory in Simao. The Jinggu tea factory used to be part of the CNNP state-owned tea factories. They started fermenting Pu’er in the mid-70’s and was the third factory ever to produce ripe pu’er!
The leaf used for our cake was turned into ripe pu’er in 2009 and is quite ready for enjoying now. We chose the blend and had the steaming and pressing done in April of 2010.
We hope you enjoy this addition to our extensive ripe pu’er selection. We think you will! And be sure to try our very own Mandala Silver Buds raw style pu’er cake, too!
