2015 Yunnan Sourcing "Green Miracle" Wild Arbor Ripe Pu-erh tea
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh
To celebrate this year we selected a wild arbor sourced Ripe Pu-erh tea from Spring 2014 and pressed into this lovely 250 gram cake.
Tea leaves from 50 to 70 years old tea trees were harvested in April 2014, then fermented through the summer. The tea was then aged in loose form for a few months before pressing this year.
Don't let the tippy appearance lure you into thinking this tea is soft and sweet. It has some of that, but more as a returning taste. The upfront feeling and taste is bitter, thick and pungent. Spring tea processed into ripe pu-erh is rare and tea leaves harvested from tea trees with some age is also quite rare. Fermentation was done carefully to preserve the green/raw character in the tea leaves. Strong good clean taste and pure cha qi makes this an interesting ripe pu-erh to drink now and will certainly continue to age and develop with a complexity that is likely make it a stand out cake for years to come!
250 grams per cake, 7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong
