Jing Gu Sun-Dried Silver Needles White Pu-erh Tea Cake * Spring 2018
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
Made from the first flush of Spring 2018 White Pekoe (Camellia Taliensis) growing in Yang Ta village in Jing Gu county. Just the bud is picked but then instead of processing like white tea it's sun-dried (like Pu-erh). These extra large buds come from Camellia Taliensis varietal and give a sweet taste and heady pungent fruit and flower aroma!
These little cakes are lightly compressed and will come apart easily with a pu-erh pick. The tea can be aged for several years and will develop honey sweetness with hints of hay over the years.
100 grams per cake
