2015 Yunnan Sourcing "Year of the Goat" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake of Menghai
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh
Entirely Spring Harvest of 2014 material from Menghai area (Ba Da, Bu Lang and Meng Wang). Fermented in Menghai in late 2014 and then allowed to "sweat" in Menghai for about 9 months before pressing. We blended various grades from the same fermentation batch for optimum taste, aroma and infusability.
The tea is strong, pungent, thick and long lasting. It can easily go 10 brews while remaining interesting to drink. Fermentation level is medium and alot of the character of the pu-erh leaves comes out in the tea. Mellow but noticeable cha qi and easy on the stomach. This is a good example of good pure material from Menghai that was wet piled by experienced masters!
357 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)
Only 300 kilograms in total available!
