ancient sheng pu'er tea cake 2006


type: black

origin: china

variety: pu erh

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

Elevation: 1,400 - 1,850m. Cultivar: Menghai Broad Leaf. Harvest Date: Spring 2006. There are two types of Pu'er tea: Sheng (raw, green) and Shu (ripe, dark). Both originate from a rustic sun-dried green tea called Shaiqing. Shu Pu'er is made by pile-fermenting Shaiqing teas over a period of 85-120 days. Like fine wine, Pu'er tea has the ability to be aged and released in vintages. The Mannong Village 2006 is a treasure for those who enjoy aged sheng. After more than a decade of aging in a high elevation, cool environment, the dense polyphenols have rounded into an expansive mouthfeel that is brimming with profound Cha Qi "tea energy."
