2008 American Hao 0802 Pu-erh Tea Cake 400g (美国号0802南糯乔木青饼) also comes in 200g cake
The second of its series (first being the American Hao 0801), this cake is made by using Fall arbor materials from Nannuo, Menghai area. We called it ‘Nannuo Old Tea’ (Chinese: 南糯古茶).
Nannuo is one of six famous tea mountains, located within the boundaries of Menghai county.
The elevation of Nannuo is between 1250-2000 meters, with the tropical rainforest climate. The tea leaves for our American Hao 0802 was harvested from the 500-800 years old (arbor,Qiaomu) trees, at Half Slope Old Village (Ban Po Lao Zhai).
