FIRST IMPRESSION 2013 SHOU PU ER
A most interesting cooked Pu Er cake. The first couple of brews are lighter, reminiscent of Tea Horse Road. Once the opens up, you get the classic fermented feel of an 8 year old, cooked Pu Er. Talk about leaping evolution!
In terms of flavour, drinking this tea reminds us of sipping Tea Horse Road, steeped in chaga and served in a birch burl kuksa.
Note: some of these tea cakes are wrapped in unbranded, handcrafted paper.
Whereas Yiwu (the raw material for Tea Horse Road) tends to have naturally light, elegant aromas, the equilibrium in this tea cake is achieved by blending tea leaves from the 6 famous mountains that surround the Menghai region: Hekai, Mengsong, Bulang, Bada, Nannuo, Jingmai.
