Old Cang Family Green Pu-erh Tea Cake (老苍家青饼)

This cake tea came from a private reserve. You could not get it in local market.

The cake is made of blending 2009 Spring arbor tea leaves from Guafengzhai/Mahei/Mansa, considering it a truly authentic rare and unique Pu-erh tea.

The taste has depth and strength with strang Chaqi, floral scent and sweet. Enjoy it now or put it away for a even more wonderful tea developed, a treasure not to be missed.

A wonderful tea, it’s one of our best findings in our 2010 tea trip.

This sample comes off to me as a very good young sheng puerh to be drinking now and coming from a person who generally avoids sheng. Overall the taste is smooth and sweet without any traces of harshness or smoke. While the tea has a floral taste to it, the floral taste is not overwhelming nor is the other strong “puerh” taste overwhelming either so the description of it having both strength and depth is a pretty good way of putting it. The tea holds out very well and consistently for more infusions than I could drink and did not result in any stomach issues for me which says a lot to one that is more sensitive to too much young sheng puerh.
