Golden Needle "Year of the Tiger" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake
This cake is pressed entirely from 2021 Spring harvested Yi Wu area tea that was wet piled in Menghai! This is a tippy "Golden Needle" grade ripe. It's very smooth and sweet, with some bittersweet character that reminds us of dark chocolate. Bitterness is barely noticeable but acts as a counterpoint to the sweet velvety taste of this thick viscous tea. This tea also carries some dried cherry and vanilla notes as well.
Pressed in late 2021 to commemorate the Year of the Tiger this lovely tea cake would be perfect for gifting during 2022 or stockpiling for aging.
Clean, smooth, complex, and aromatic ripe pu-erh tea that performs well beyond it's price tag!
