2013 Chen Sheng Hao "Na Ka" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
This 2013 Spring Na Ka production is a very high quality production from wild arbor tea trees and bushes from the Na Ka mountain area in Menghai County. It's the first Na Ka tea I have offered, and did so because I feel it's an excellent example of the Na Ka terroir that's both good and affordable!
The tea has been stored in Guangdong since 2013 and the hot and humid storage has helped it along by transforming it's bitter and astringent Northern Bu Lang character into something rich and complex. It's fruity, nutty and has a chicken soup thickness to it. There is definitely still a fair amount of astringency and bitterness with this tea, but that's expected, and needed for this tea to continue to age and grow in stature.
** 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!
357 grams per cake!
