1999 "Taiwan Export" Aged Ripe Pu-erh Tea Brick
This is a general production from Menghai area that was intended for export to Taiwan but the balance was never paid and the tea sat in a Kunming warehouse for close to a decade before it was purchased by a friend of ours.
This is a powerful ripe tea that was aged in a very clean Kunming storage condition. It brews up a wonderful crisp tea that has notes of coffee bean, camphor and dried fruit. Being a lightly wet-piled ripe, it's still got a little bit of bitterness in the early steeps. Later steeps reveal a creaminess and a more pronounced "chen xiang" (aged aroma).
