A lovely small, ripe, quality Pu erh tea cake vintage 2004 from the Menghai area in South West Yunnan. The area has superb tea growing conditions, rich fertile soils, a sub-tropical climate, and plenty of light and water to produce a subtle, smooth, rich tasting tea. The little golden buds and leaves are hand picked from 100 year old trees in the ancient tea forest under a natural ecological environment free from pesticides and fertilisers.

After picking, the leaves and buds are air dried, pan fried, fermented, steamed and pressed in molds in the traditional way. The cake looks beautiful due to the high percentage of buds and the aftertaste is lighter than compared to tea made of full grown leaves.

We recommend using between 5g to 8g per serving. Traditionally the first infusion rinses the tea and is discarded. Pu erh does not require a long infusion time, no more than five seconds for each brewing. Break off pieces from the tea cake using a letter opener or similar shaped knife, before infusing in a Gaiwan or teapot. Brew with boiling water in a teapot or gaiwan and pour the water through the buds and leaves which should be good for 6 - 8 brews.
