From Yunnan Sourcing

This was produced by the state-owned CNNP tea factory back in 1999 of which most was sent to Malaysia. It is composed of Menghai area fermented material. The leaves mostly larger but have been fermented not too heavily preserving the natural flavors of the tea leaves and allowing for gradual post-fermentation. Brews a super clear red-wine colored tea liquor. A delightful ripe pu-erh tea aged to perfection.

This comes wrapped in plain white wrapper. No Nei Fei.

Net Weight: 250 grams
Ingredients: Yunnan Large leaf varietal fermented pu-erh
Produced by CNNP from Menghai material

Wow. Just a great tea. I’m no master in ripes from this era, but for me this is something special. Incredibly smooth, solid, gentle, well-flavored, and consistent. It’s got a great chi. It’s a perfect ripe flavor, not overpowering in any way. For those looking for a super super suave and smooth aged ripe, this is the one. Good good tea

Oh my, awesome ripe experience. Extremely creamy and sweet – sweetest pu-erh experience so far with a noticeable backnotes of fresh fruits and spicyness. Very full in mouth, long after drinking i still have its taste and can activate it just by making a windmill with my tongue – thats crazy :). Ive just could not stop myself from drinking it more and more. For a while i have felt like small child in the playground.

A clean tasting ripe pu-erh devoid of the fermentation “wo dui” taste and aroma. A very interesting shou brick with nice age on it. Sweetness detected throughout the steepings. Quite smooth in the mouthfeel and throat
The large tea leaves yield a dark and clear burgundy-brown tea soup. The first steeping is sweet and spicy and my first taste is mellow and bold without any sign of rough edges. There is a full and smooth body, with nice depth and a lovely flavor palette going on with an appealing mix of wood and leather. The tea liquor has an enduring sweetness to it and a decent aftertaste
Overall: Very clean fermentation and excellent aged taste; flavors of wood, honey and spices. After a total of six or seven infusions, the flavor starts to weaken. I am a fan of this tea.

I’m interested to know how creamy this tea is. Is there any milk chocolate in the flavour?
