2012 YUNNAN SOURCING "YI DIAN HONG" RIPE PU-ERH TEA MINI CAKE
Our 2012 “Little Bit of Red” production is made entirely from Menghai area material fermented in 2009 and 2010. Similar to last year’s blend, but with 35% Gong Ting grade ripe tea (instead of 30%). The remaining 65% is a nice semi-aged (in Menghai) Grade 3 tea from 2009.
Fermentation level is medium, so this cake still has a little bite to it and more room for improvement with aging. The fermentation “dui wei” flavor is mostly dissipated and the taste will gradually improve over the years to come. The fermented material was stored in Menghai for 2 and 3 years before being pressed into these 100 gram mini cakes.
Single cakes or tongs (7 cakes wrapped in bamboo leaf) are available for purchase!
