2017 Yunnan Sourcing "Yi Wu Rooster" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake

$57.50

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

This is a ripe pu-erh tea cake processed entirely from Yi Wu area spring 2017 tea leaves.  A mix of plantation and wild arbor (not old tree) tea leaves were expertly wet piled in Menghai town for 42 days.  The wet piling process was done with great care to preserve much of the green character of the leaf.  This is also known as light fermentation wet piling and results in a tea with a lot of character and one that ages slower but more gracefully.

The taste is incredibly unique and complex, reflecting it's unadulterated origins, single region terroir, spring harvesting, and it's skillful wet piling.  Thick and creamy in the mouth, there is a cooling mouth-feel, at once both lubricating and sweet, and a long-lasting feeling in the mouth and throat. 

A unique Yi Wu ripe tea that is pleasing and enlivening!
