2004 Nan Qiao "Fu Dao" Menghai Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake

$65.00 USD

Brand: Nan Qiao Tea Factory

"Fu Dao" 福到refers to the turning upside down of the "福" character which means Prosperity Arrives!

Nan Qiao tea factory is an older more established tea factory in Menghai town of Xiashuangbanna.

This ripe cake has been aged for 13 years in Xishuangbanna and has reached a nearly fully matured taste and aroma... smooth and difficult to over-brew but at the same time complex and tasty.

Very nice aged ripe pu-erh!

 

Brewing Recommendations:

1.  Break off small chunks and break them up further.  The compression is very tight.

2.  Use a teapot with good temperature stability.

3.  Use 100C water!!!

4.  Push the tea with longer infusions in the beginning to get the tea to "open up"
