2008 Yi Wu Zheng Shan "Tong Xing Lao Zi Hao" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Spring 2008 harvested Yi Wu Mountain tea leaves were pressed using stone compression technique in the Yi Wu Zheng Shan Tea Factory in Yi Wu town of Mengla County (Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan).
The tea was aged in Jinghong in Xishuangbanna for 10 years before being purchased and brought to Kunming in January 2018. The wetter aging condition has transformed this tea into an semi-aged gem. The strong character of the tea shines through the years and wetter aging condition to deliver a pungent and viscous tea with some mild bitterness and astringency, and a strong sweet hui gan (returning taste). There is a long-lasting mouth-feel and the tea is surprisingly infusable! This would be a good tea to purchase for enjoying now or to gain a head start on the aging process.
