ancient sheng pu'er cake xinhua village | 2013


type: black

origin: china

region: lincang prefecture xinhua village yunnan

variety: pu erh

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

Origin: Xinhua Village, Lincang Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China. Elevation: 1,850m. Cultivar: Mengku Broad Leaf. Harvest Date: Spring 2013. 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. This sheng pu'er tea cake has a lively structure and fresh bittersweet profile that shows its youth. It is excellent to begin drinking now and to enjoy for years of aging potential. With its refreshingly brisk body, we recommend enjoying this tea in the Gongfu Cha preparation style with brief infusions beginning at just 20 seconds.
