Lincang County, Yunnan Province, China
Sheng ‘raw’ Pu-erh
Produced by the Shuangjiang Mengku Tea Company
High percentage of broad leaf gathered from tea trees in Bing Dao village in the Shuangjiang area
Stone pressed in 2009: light/medium compression
To open the cake: gently bend back and forth to loosed the interlocking tea leaves and break the cake into large pieces or use a Pu-erh cake breaking tool ( un-sharp knife )
Clean, tender spring leaf gives this tea cake a delightful woodsy, vegetal taste. The addition of a percentage of buds adds a little youthful astringency to the taste. But overall the taste is nutty and sweet
A large wild-arbor leaf is pressed into the front of the cake to authenticate the presence of wild-arbor leaf in this cake
Opinion: Drink now or let it age
