Pu'er Sheng Pu - 2012, 200 gr. Stone-pressed Cakes

Regular price € 35.80 EUR

Tax included.

The fresh leaves of this special Pu'er Sheng pu were harvested in Spring 2012 and pressed in 2019. We decided to let them ferment naturally for seven years surrounded by the beautiful landscape of Nannuo mountain, before pressing them and locking this unique fragrance in time. They have been pressed by stone, to guarantee the best leaf quality both now and in the years to come.

By infusing the leaves, one can still feel the quiet seclusion of spring rain and the fresh mountain air, with a warm underwood aftertaste which is typical of the fermentation process. However, one can also decide to store the cakes and let them continue their fermentation process, awaiting a new change in flavor and hereafter savoring the aroma of the times to come.

The tea cakes, called "bing" in Chinese, are sold individually or in "Ti", that is the traditional way to wrap them. Each Ti has been hand-wrapped using dry bamboo leaves, and it is the best material to age Pu'er. We think that it also is the most charming!

With every five cakes-“Ti” there’s a wooden tea cake knife (“chadao”) for free.
