This pu erh cake is made from thick and strong leaves as one can expect from a first flush Nan Nuo Shan raw tea cake. The tea is complemented with a small amount of larger yellow leaves to optimise flavour. This tea is fully handpicked and hand processed.
The leaves are full of flavour and will ask for many more brews than an average raw pu erh. Given the amazing ageing potential of this cake, we recommend to enjoy this tea starting 2022. The strong flavour will mellow out and transform in beautiful complex aroma and cha qi. In other words, a great investment for those who’re patient!
Note: we've noticed that this tea gives a strong caffeine boost. We do not recommend this tea to those who're somewhat sensitive to caffeine. You don't want to get 'tea drunk'!
