From famous Yiwu Manluo Tea Factory comes this light-aged tea cake, a classic Yiwu. This is a classic Yiwu that brews a coppertone liquor tasted both mellow and full in the mouth.

The cake is made of tea leaves harvested from ancient trees in Spring from Yiwu mountains, considering it a truly authentic rare and unique Pu-erh tea. It went into aging in Yiwu township that delivered a taste of a good green Pu-erh that was in its adolescent age.

Okay, so I hate the appropriation of the word “artisan” by marketers to suggest that a product was made by hand in some remote workshop by a wizened old master who is the final link to some disappearing skill. It’s a sandwich for God’s sake! I am, however, a sucker for the word “ancient” when used to describe pu-erh tea.

It reminds me of Coleridge’s Ancient Mariner: mellowed with age, but with an inner intensity. You see this old man at a wedding; he seems inconsequential. You’re prepared to be dismissive until he starts to tell his tale and you realize what he has to say is wise, mythic, elemental.

Okay, so maybe this raw/green pu-erh is not mythic, but it does have a mellow, sweet, round feel that suggests the ancient leaf. But be prepared, the energy packed in these leaves is like the intensity of the Mariner’s gaze. It had me up half the night singing Springsteen songs in preparation for a concert tomorrow night in Boston.
