2005 Xinghai "Silver Peacock" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake
A classic Xinghai ripe tea produced from the late 90's until. Xinghai tea factory is the 2nd producer of ripe tea in Menghai town (after Menghai tea factory), and has an excellent "wo dui" fermentation process. This cake is called "Menghai Old Tree" and is also "Silver Peacock" recipe.
Our 2005 Silver Peacock was aged in Guangdong. It's a "Guangdong dry-stored" tea that has already lost it's "wo dui" (fermented) taste. The tea brews up a deep, dark but clear burgundy-brown tea soup. The tea is super sweet and smooth with a dried cherry after-taste. Goes many many rounds and is nearly impossible to over-brew.
** Some wrappers may be bug-bitten with little holes in the paper. There may also be some dust between the wrapper and the cake. Rinse tea once or twice briefly before drinking! If you are squeamish please don't order this tea!
