2000 CNNP "Yi Wu Chen Xiang" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Brick
This is not a licensed CNNP production but rather a farmer production done in 2000 from Yi Wu harvested tea leaves wet piled in Menghai.
The tea was purchased by Hai Lang in 2003 on his first trip to Yi Wu and then stored in Kunming since that time. The leaves are fairly coarse, probably a blend of grade 5, 7, 9 and Cu Ye (wet piled matured leaf huang pian).
This tea's hallmarks are an ultra-transparent burgundy tea soup, thick full mouth-feel, creamy body, and long lasting sweetness. It can also be infused many times and after that we recommend boiling the leaves for 10 minutes and drinking the resulting "soup". Yum!
250 grams per brick (originally no wrapper, so we will wrap in white paper)
