2018 Haiwan "Remote Mountain, Old Tree" Premium Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake
Brand: Haiwan Tea Factory
This is a classic Haiwan production "深山老树" (lit. Remote Mountain, Old Tree). First offered in 2005 as a premium blend of tea leaves from Menghai area, it was later expanded to a premium ripe offering.
The 2018 production is a blend of previous year's (2017) wet piled pu-erh from Menghai. It's a blend of tips, medium and coarser tea leaves suitable for aging. The wet pile taste is present but hardly overpowering, though this would benefit from further aging (until 2020) if you are sensitive to wet pile taste!
500 Grams per cake (7 cakes per paper tong)
