The Big Dipper | Ripe (Shu) Puer Tea Cake
357 gram cake
Like a night in the open pasture staring at the stars. The aromatics border on over-ripened floral, but the cup dives into sweet humus and loam. Full body, soft mouthfeel, worry-free.
The primary tea was harvested/processed April 19, 2019. The post-fermentation was done August 8, 2019. The tea was produced by Mr. Chen Zhao Quen in Puer city, Yunnan, China. It’s a one bud, two-three leaf pick of the Yunnan Big Leaf cultivar growing at approximately 5,000 feet.
