Autumn 2012 "Pure Bed Feng Qing Black Tea Cake" 357 Grams
This little tea cake is pressed from Autumn 2012 Feng Qing black tea. The tea is made entirely from small bud (no leaf) Feng Qing black tea from Lincang. The taste is super-smooth with malty and floral notes. Typically black tea is not pressed but in the last several years we have pressed black tea into cakes with great success. Black tea is suitable for aging and undergoes a gradual mellowing. Compressing black tea slows the aging process and makes the tea suitable for drinking as much as 5 years into the future. The compressed black tea cake is also quite bold and lovely in its appearance!
