2006 Lao Man'e Brand "Nannuo Gong Ting" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake

$45.00 USD

Brand: Lao Man'e Brand

This is a well-aged Guangdong storage ripe pu-erh tea pressed in 2006 by the Lao Man'e Brand. This is composed of Gong Ting (tippy grade) ripe pu-erh tea harvested from the Nannuo Mountains in Xishuangbanna.

The many years of aging have given this tea an aged "chen xiang" taste and aroma. It also has a fruity sweetness and light hardwood tastes. Although it's a tippy grade "gong ting" ripe, it can easily be pushed with long steeps (usually after 5 steeps it's good to brew this for a minute or more).  Very infusable ripe with plenty of complexity and mouth-feel.

250 Grams per cake
