2010 Rongzhen Reserve Ripen Pu-erh Tea Cake
2010 Rongzhen Reserve Ripen Pu-erh Tea Cake (荣珍特级熟饼)
Every year I paid a few visits to Rongzhen teas for their no frills, yet above average teas. In 2010 Fall I found this cake hidden behind the counter as their reserve. They had selected the best ripen materials they had made so far, made them into this superb Pu-erh tea cake, as a reserve for a closed circle, not for open market.
The proprietor confirmed that the materials were from Menghai area, and fermented at Menghai with its ‘white sand water’, less than 300 cakes were made.
