2007 YiPinTang "Yi Pin Puer" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake
Yi Pin Tang is a brand and tea factory in Menghai town in Xishuangbanna. They specialize in Ripe Pu-erh and their wet piling process is overseen by Mr. Xu. Mr. Xu started his 15 year career with Menghai tea factory in the late 1980's, during which time he mastered the wet piling "wo dui" process.
This cake was pressed in 2007, from tea wet piled in 2006. The tea cakes were aged in Kunming until now. This is a good example of a mature ripe that needs no further aging. It's very thick, sweet and rich in taste and brews up 10+ infusions easily when brewed gong fu style.
