2006 Hai Lang Hao Jin Hai Lang Ripe 357g
A high quality slightly aged ripe pu-erh tea cake from Hai Lang Hao! 2005 fermented material from Menghai in Xishuangbanna was blended to create Hai Lang’s special “gold” recipe and pressed into these lovely cakes. 5 years of aging has made this light fermentation ripe tea cake something special.
“Jin Hai Lang” means “Gold Hai Lang” and is one of two cakes pressed from the same fermentation batch. “Gold Hai Lang” has more large fermented buds than it’s partner “Jin Se Zhen Min”. Both of these cakes are great examples of what can be achieved using high grade raw material, small batch fermentation and time!
Tea Weight: 357 grams
Vintage: 2005 material, January 2006 pressing.
