8 Years Aged "Mang Fei Mountain" Ripe Loose Leaf Pu-erh Tea


Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop

This 5 years aged ripe pu-erh tea was produced from tea leaves harvested in the Mang Fei mountain area of Yong De county (Lincang).  The tea underwent wet piling (wo dui) in a local Yong De area tea factory, and then sold to a Nan Jian area tea factory. 

Tea was aged in Nan Jian since 2012, and now after losing it's "wo dui" taste (freshly wet piled aka composted) brews up a clear burgundy red tea soup.  The taste is very clear and sweet, with an earth and camphor taste.

Tea is Grade 5 size tea leaves (neither big nor small).  An enjoyable and accessible ripe pu-erh tea that's great to drink now, but will continue to improve with further storage.
