Jingmai Mountain Gong Ting Grade Loose Leaf Ripe Pu-erh Tea
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
This Gong Ting grade ripe tea is a from a wet pile batch done entirely from Jingmai Mountain area (Lancang County) tea leaves harvested in 2017 and wet piled in 2018!
Gong Ting grade ripe pu-erh tea is the smallest leaf grade, has a very potent cha qi, with a thick tea soup, dark chocolate like bitterness and fruity sweetness.
This Jingmai mountain ripe gong ting is very sweet and thick with an almost fruity creaminess that will become increasingly pronounced with the passing of time.
For those of you who purchase this tea during the year of 2018 expect that there will be a fairly strong wet pile taste throughout 2018, but one that will fade gradually as tea ages. Remember pu-erh increases in palatability and complexity with age! In Chinese we refer to this as 越陈越香.
