2022 Yunnan Sourcing "Gold Impression" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
This year's Impression cake is a blend of tea leaves from Spring and Autumn, originating from Lincang, Simao, and Menghai tea gardens.
For the year 2022 we decided to do a Silver and a Gold release for the Impression Raw series! This "Gold Impression" is the fancier of the two cakes and sports a thick buttery bittersweet character, full-bodied tea soup, and a long-lasting brewing experience! The tea is classic processing style and has a golden tea soup with a thick mouth-feel.
In 2012, I created the first impression blend to be an alternative to a Xiaguan or Da Yi 7542, but it has far surpassed those mass market teas in both quality and value! I also feel strongly that this tea, being very strong in aroma, mouthfeel, bitter/astringent, infusability and Cha Qi, makes it a good choice for long-term aging!
