From Yunnan Sourcing

This classic “jin cha” or mushroom tuo is made entirely from Certified Organic raw pu-erh tea, harvested in the Wu Liang mountains of Simao ini Spring 2011. Nan Jian tea factory is based in Nan Jian township just north of the Wu Liang mountains and uses certified organic tea leaves from the region to compose their raw and ripe tea cakes.

These lovely mushroom tuo were aged in the warm mist shrouded climate of Nan Jian. This has aged quickly and brews up a gold-orange tea soup. The taste is thick and sweet without much bitterness and astringency. The feeling in the mouth and throat is soothing and stays long after drinking.

This is an incredible level of quality in an organic tea at this price point. Highly recommended!!!

Early aromas include mineral, leather, old books, cherries, with a sweet, round, possibly apricot flavor that is a bit musty, but with no astringency or bitterness. Additional early steeps present strong minerals, light cherries, paper. The physical composition is much more leafy than the twiggy ripe pu erh from the same year/producer. Very little mustiness as steeping continues, with some faint damp earthiness. Much paler compared to ripe, a tawny port color. Aftertaste is not very long, but apricot is predominant, with a little tannin. Later steeps bring an aroma of wet hay, campfire, and a little bitterness enters the flavor.
