2016 Yunnan Sourcing "Green Mark" Ripe Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh
With this lovely cake we celebrate an age-old tradition of mixing raw and ripe pu-erh tea together to create a harmonious blend worthy of aging. Like the famous "Purple Heaven" bricks and cakes from the 80's and 90's, we have blended ripe and raw Pu-erh tea together. The raw and ripe pu-erh both came from the same area as the tea leaves used in our 2016 Spring Mengku Huang Shan cake. The ripe pu-erh is fermented from Huang Shan 2015 spring tea leaves, but both are from the same organic garden!
The addition of raw pu-erh tea to this predominately ripe pu-erh tea cake results in a lovely experience. It's not so different from ripe pu-erh tea, but there is a an additional layer of texture that enhances the overall taste/complexity of the tea but never detracting from it. I tirelessly blended teas together and experimented with ratios to find the best possible outcome. I hope you'll enjoy this lovely tea!
Recommended for longer-term aging!
