From Yunnan Sourcing

Our “Peerless” ripe pu-erh tea cake was pressed from wild arbor tea growing in Da Hu Sai and Xiao Hu Sai villages (Mengku County of Lincang). It’s a small batch wet piled tea of which only 600 kilograms were produced. We were fortunate enough to be able to get a portion of this extremely premium ripe pu-erh tea and press under our own label!

Thick, rich, long-lasting, potent, pungent, and with a nice strong cha qi as well makes this a ripe pu-erh tea that is sure to impress!

The hallmark of this tea is undoubtedly its thick and oily texture. If it wasn’t as colloidal, it would probably feel more like a sheng. It also has a clean, elegant taste, and a long-lasting aftertaste with an emerging sweetness. Overall, however, it lacks pungency and complexity. Thus, I wouldn’t prefer to drink this one over most of the blended ripes from Yunnan Sourcing.

The aromas are particularly weak, but also a bit unusual. There is a hint of charred bread like naan as well as chicory in the wet leaf scent. The taste is also more vegetal than most ripes. There are hints of pine nuts and butter, not many other associations come to mind though.
