From tea-adventure

White tea-cake produced in 2008. This tea is slightly fermented big leaf white tea-cake from Yunnan.

The leaves of this white tea-cake come from old tea-trees and are then processed into a high quality white tea. The method of processing, the origin and the shape of this tea Big Leave White Tea (the cake) make this tea a combination of a ‘puerh’ tea and a ‘white’ tea. Since the taste of this tea is relatively similar to the Moonshine White tea, we can consider this tea to be a white tea. Yunnan Big Leaf is not just a beautiful white tea cake, but also a great tea to drink

This is an excellent white tea puer cake. It shares the caracteristics of both. Beautiful big, hairy buds, you don’t need a knife to take a few, it is a very loose cake, so the buds remain integer. It allows many brews, improving gradually to a delicious sweet clear brew.

My brewing of today: 6 g. for a 15cl glass teapot, 80 C water. Rinse, and discard the second brew; don’t overbrew (even at the tenth brew don’t pass 40" otherwise a slightly grassy taste emerges). I have never succeeded in exhausting the leaves, nor to count how many brews I did.

I have the cake since one year, and either I have learned how to brew it optimally, or it is improving with age; maybe both. I might have to buy another, and forget it for a few years.
