From LangHe Tea Factory

2003 Langhe “Green Mark” Ripe 357g
This 2003 production has aged to perfection. It has lost its fermented flavor and developed into a many faceted ripe tea that is sure to satisfy lovers of Ripe Pu-erh. Medium to large leaves were lightly fermented and then allowed to age in compressed for for more than 10 years! The result is sweet and smooth tea that gives a great “hui gan”. The color of the tea liquor is a deeply satisfying red-wine color. It is almost impossible to over-infuse this tea!

Langhe tea factory has been producing teas for more than 15 years. A Menghai based tea factory that specializes in producing Pu-erh tea in the traditional manner. Langhe ripe pu-erhs are special because their fermentation process is “lighter” using less heat and shorter times. The result is a brewed leaf with a slightly greenish-brown appearance. This lighter fermentation process allows for a more gradual transformation into a ripe tea. Langhe ripe teas typically take 2 to 3 years to lose their “dui wei” and become very enjoyable to drink.

Fantastic tea! Very loose compression, especially for a shou. Big broad leaves in this one, I used around 8g in a 200ml yixing with a rinse and 10s steeps initially. The color was a little lighter than expected, a deep reddish brown. The tea was sooooo smooth! It just flows in the mouth with little to no resistance. Flavors showed good complexity with notes of leather, dates, and spices. The hui gan of this tea kicks you right in the mouth! Lots of times I’ll have to breath in or out to notice the hui gan of a tea, but this one has an immediate numbing sensation on the roof of the mouth and tongue. Great cha qi too! An awakening, reassuring calmness is what I got from this tea and I quite enjoyed it. Based on reviews I bought a whole cake before sampling it first and I’m not disappointed in the least! This is one hell of a shou pu erh!

I think I have found my new favorite shou pu’er. This tea is incredible. It is incredibly mellow, yet extremely flavorful. There are layers of flavor that I cannot even begin to properly describe. I am five steppings into this delightful tea an my palate is in pu’er heaven! Well worth the money.
