Raw Pu-Erh Tea Cake | Lincang
Name: Sheng Puerh | Teabook Raw Puerh
Origin: Lincang Area, Yunnan Province, China
Harvest: Spring 2017
This 100 gram exclusive Teabook tea cake is the perfect entry-level raw pu-erh tea!
Fresh, Floral, Vegetal
Harvested from trees between 50 and 100 years old.
A clean young raw pu-erh with atypical honey floral sweetness not found in most young raws.
This light rose-gold elixir first tickles your nose with pungent fresh floral mao cha aroma with sweet spring flowers. Upon the first sip you'll notice a bright texture yielding a slight pucker on the center of your tongue.
Flavor notes of sweet floral, roses, woods dance throughout the steepings.
Incredibly subtle dryness and astringency towards the end of the steepings, which can be avoided with lowering the brewing temperatures towards the end.
This lovely tea finishes with a sweet honey-like feeling lingering in the back of the throat.
