2016 LANGHE "8451 RECIPE" Ripe Puerh - 2 oz
Langhe Tea Factory of Menghai, Yunnan is known as a premium producer of ripe puerh. Their lighter fermentation style creates more complex teas - allowing the integrity of the leaf to evolve into greater dimensions of flavor and character over time. The 8451 recipe is made with average grade 5 leaf and is laced with golden buds that balance the woodsiness of the smaller grade leaves. The tea soup is rich, full- bodied and dark amber. displaying notes of wood, cacao nib, walnuts, mushroom and hint of sweet milk - but with a dry finish in the first couple steeps. A lovely sweetness is revealed in the third steeping and beyond.
