1999 "Taiwan Export" Aged Ripe Pu-erh Tea Brick

$88.00 USD

Brand: Other Factories

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).
