From Yunnan Sourcing

This tea cake was created to commemorate the opening of the newer second section of the Jin Shi Kunming Wholesale Tea market. The Jin Shi wholesale market located in the north of Kunming was completed in 1999, and facilitated the trading and shipping of Yunnan teas to the rest of China and the world. In the early part of the 2000’s this wholesale market was primarily engaged in the sale of Yunnan green teas for domestic consumption, but there were some Pu-erh sellers as well as factory outlets for CNNP, Da Yi, and Xiaguan located in the older section of the market.

The tea cake is composed of blended raw material from Lincang, Simao and Menghai sun-dried tea leaves. Compression level is medium and the tea is still pungent and intense as it was dry aged in Kunming since its inception. This cake differs from it’s counterpart the 2002 Tai Lian “International Pu-erh Tea Expo” Anniversary Raw tea cake in it’s leaf grade and blend recipe. I find this cake to be less edgy and intense, probably due to the larger more coarse leaves used.

Each nei fei was hand-signed by the three investors who built the annex to the Kunming Wholesale Tea Market!

A nice semi-aged tea with powerful cha qi countered with a developing aged mellowness.

This is my current favourite of my limited collection. It is very smooth with subtle smoke and honey flavours. It is very long on the palate and thoroughly satisfying.

What a nice middle aged tea. Thanks to Brenden for putting a sample of this into the TTB. It brews a deep amber color, with fairly thick body. The storage has been dry. It is not terribly complex, I’d say it is nice and basic. Early steeps have some smoke, which eventually clears. There is little bitterness or astringency, which is part of why the flavor is simple and straightforward. Later steeps are more on the fruity side. I got plenty of infusions out of it.
