This is a very delicious, slightly-larger-than-usual mini shou beeng cha that is made from leaf materials gathered from the Menghai tea area. Two different grades and vintages of sun-dried small leaf – 2006 (5th-grade leaf) and 2008 (gong ting leaf, the highest grade and smallest size leaf) were especially selected and blended together to create a shou Pu-erh that features balanced taste and rich, full body.
This little tea cake is ready to drink now – it has a creamy taste with slight overtones of chocolate and it has none of the over-wrought wo dui aroma and taste from the processing that plague many shou Pu-erh.
The texture is very silky in the mouth, and the tea liquor is quite mature tasting for such a young cake. This is one of the nicest mini Shou Pu-erh in our lineup.
Shou Pu-erh is also known as ‘cooked’ or ‘ripe’ Pu-erh, a reference to the wo dui fermentation process that the leaf undergoes in the tea factory
