We are going to offer three of our selected (from around 12 samples!) 2010 Xi-Zhi Hao cakes:
2010 Spring “Lao Wu Shan Gu Cha” 400g. Lao Wu Shan is in very remote area of “Xiao Jin Gu” of Si Mao region, old plantation of tea trees from 200 to 600 years. I chose this tea not only I like how it performed/tasted, but also it was distinct enough from the Man Ning cake – this one, I would character it as a more feminine, refined and more balanced one. Organic matter, floral and fruity, long and lingering after-taste (hui gan).
2010 Spring “Man Ning Gu Cha” 400g. This is, contrasting to Lao Wu Shan cake, a heavy, punching, and masculine one. I could imagine if not brewed properly, it could overwhelm your palate. Very interersting young pu-erh, wild, energetic, abundant mineral, thick and juicy.
2010 Spring “Risk one’s Life to Pursue” – an extremely rare XZH cakes, we were able to only acquire 5 pieces. The wrapper was screen-printed on unique handmade paper in Taiwan. Only available (but sold out) in Taiwan.
We are offering again a limited special for two samples of 2010 Xi-Zhi Hao - for only $9.5, you get to try the Lao Wu Shan and Man Ning.
