2015 Yunnan Sourcing "Yang Luo Han" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake

$40.00 USD

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

This is a blend of premium wild arbor and old plantation fermented "ripe" pu-erh tea.  We laboriously blended high quality ripe from different fermentation batches to achieve a taste that was both strong and sweet/soft at the same time.  "Yang Luo Han"  (羊罗汉) means "Goat or Ram Arhat".  An Arhat is a "perfected being", one that has achieved Nirvana and is in balance with everything in the universe.

The tea is balanced with a strong/bitter up front taste and a sweet/soft/thick taste as an underlying theme.   The leaves are lightly fermented, giving it some of the strength of raw pu-erh tea.  Perfect choice for longer term aging, though enjoyable now for the more adventurous!
