1998 CNNP "Lucky Brand" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake
Lucky Brand is a 1997-2005 CNNP Brand logo. Most of the teas produced under the Lucky Brand were ripe pu-erh teas fermented in the Yiliang Tea Factory just 45 minutes outside of Kunming. Fermentation was done by the factory director Mr Bai Xiong (also an ex Menghai tea factory person). Yiliang tea factory teas have an aromatic nature, some bitterness and are described by many Chinese pu-erh industry experts as having a kind of "roast-dried broadbean taste."
This has been aged for 21 years in a dry Guangdong storage condition. This is a lovely mature ripe tea with a camphor spiciness and a crisp chocolate bitter sweet after-taste. A totally unique experience and sure to be worthwhile for those who enjoy well aged ripe tea.
