This is a tippy blend of ripe teas that work together to create a balanced and harmonious whole. Very smooth and sweet, with some bittersweet character that reminds us of dark chocolate. Bitterness is barely noticeable but acts as a counterpoint to the sweet velvety taste of this thick viscous tea. This tea also carries some dried cherry and vanilla notes as well.
If you were a fan of our (now sold out) 2016 Yunnan Sourcing “Golden Needle” Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake, then this one should also be one that you consider.
Harvested from Lincang (Mengku) Spring 2017 tea leaves, and then expertly wet piled in Menghai town in a small tea factory. The taste and aroma will improve gradually over the next decade or more. As the wet pile taste dissipates and the unique delicate character of this tea reveals itself, it will become one of the most unique and enjoyable ripe pu-erhs in your collection!
