River World - Big Snow Mountain, Lincang Prefecture, Yunnan 2019 - 2 oz/ 240 g Cake
LIving Tea is honored to share our first private reserve shou cake. Flavors of mocha, roasted hazelnut, cooked plum, and earthy damp soil rise from a velvety, smooth broth. Noticeable Sheng Jin or pleasant moistness coats the mouth and lingers between steepings. The name speaks to this quality of wet fermentation and we are very happy with the clean, precise processing, which yields a balanced, rich, deep tea. The aroma draws you into the lush undergrowth around a river in a healthy forest. The energy is opening and steady, slightly more yang than other shou puerh, but gentle and long-lasting. This is a truly wonderful tea that will age beautifully.
