Rich notes of chocolate, mushroom, leather, wet dirt abound in this smooth pu-erh tea cake. Made by Menghai tea factory - a leading producer of quality pu-erh tea - this ripe or shou pu-erh has everything that makes this category of pu-erh alluring. There is a sweet softness to the soup (liquor), evoking a warm fuzzy feeling upon sipping.
Unlike raw pu-erh, the ripe variety is fermented in the factory before the leaves are compressed into cakes. A lot of ripe pu-erh can be hard on the palate with its overwhelming earthiness. But ones that are well made, like this mini cake, are very enjoyable and energizing.
Notably, we often recommend this tea to those wanting to switch from coffee to tea.
