2005 Jing Long "Tribute" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake of Yi Wu
Jing Long is a small Yi Wu based producer that has been making tea since 1998. This is an Spring harvest 2005 tea cake that was stone-pressed in the traditional manner.
Pressed in Yi Wu from Yi Wu area tea trees, and then stored in Jinghong until December 2016, this has aged well and gives a gold-orange tea soup when brewed. Smooth, sweet with hints of honey and hay. There is a slight dark chocolate bitterness to it that quicky transforms in the mouth to a viscous and lubricating experience!
If you love Yi Wu tea, but want something aged, mellow but still having complexity then this just might be the tea you've been looking for!
357 grams per cake
** Some wrappers may be bug-bitten with little holes in the paper. There may also be some dust between the wrapper and the cake. Rinse tea once or twice briefly before drinking! If you are squeamish please don't order this tea!
