2017 Nan Nuo Shan Raw Puer Cake (100g)
Continuing our experiment with proper aging and seasonality, we bought this tea for the second consecutive year from the same farmer's plot of trees in Nan Nuo Shan, and it doesn't disappoint. This is a good tea for those further along in their exploration of sheng Puer. Bitterness and astrigency are apparent from the first cup, with transforming flavors from vanilla, honey and legume to floral, honeyed tobacco. A treat from first to last cup.
