1998 CNNP ‘Lucky Brand’ Ripe Puerh Tea Cake (20g sample)
19 years in Guangdong = a truly aged Ripe. smooth with aged complexity
20g samples only!
Storage has been kind to this cake. You will notice a slight whiff and taste of ‘grandmothers cupboard’ in the first 2 infusions, nothing unbearable. Further steepings offers aged complexity with camphor and bitter cocoa notes that hang on the palette. A nice viscosity with the occasional pleasant tea burp occurring which is a good sign. A great tea for tea veterans and people wishing to explore what an aged Ripe can taste like!
