Description

I purchased three tongs of this tea back in 2016, and have aged them in my warehouse since then: eleven stories above ground level and in natural dry storage. Two years down here have made these cakes pliable enough that I can snap pieces off to brew with my hands! There is absolutely no residual wo dui aroma or flavor in the tea. I get a light aroma of fresh bread or yeast from the tea instead, which is characteristic of my dry storage teas.


This tea has plenty of power, and surprisingly calming energy as well. There is lots of gongting in the mix, but since this has mellowed considerably in my storage, it doesn't upset my tummy in the least, and doesn't have the overpowering caffeine punch I'd expect. Don't get me wrong, there's plenty of caffeine here, but this tea doesn't leave me with my head reeling!

In the cup, after two rinses, this tea starts off with almond, which was unexpected from shu pu erh. There is bitterness in this tea yet, but it is balanced and very pleasant. I got notes of camphor, prunes, date and jujube: to get all of these ripe pu erh notes from one cake was very surprising, and is indicative of the blended Menghai material. I've never had any one cake present me with the full range of shu pu erh flavors at once, so this is a very unique offering.

I only have 20 of these cakes up for grabs. Please don't hesitate if you want one (or even a tong)!
