8 Years Aged "Mang Fei Mountain" Ripe Loose Leaf Pu-erh Tea

$6.30 USD

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop

This aged ripe pu-erh tea was produced from tea leaves harvested in the Mang Fei mountain area of Yong De county (Lincang).  The tea underwent wet piling (wo dui) in a local Yong De area tea factory, and then sold to a Nan Jian area tea factory. 

Tea was aged in Nan Jian from 2012-2017, and then Kunming thereafter!  After 8 years of aging its "wo dui" taste (freshly wet piled aka composted) is entirely gone!  It brews up a clear burgundy red tea soup, and the taste is very clear and sweet, with an earthy camphor taste.

Tea is Grade 5 size tea leaves (neither big nor small).  An enjoyable and accessible ripe pu-erh tea that's great to drink now, but will continue to improve with further storage.

2012 harvested and wet piled!
