The Nan Nuo pure mountain tea is a limited edition tea cake produced in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan. The leaves are a 2019 vintage and are characterized by a sweet cup with bitter notes and astringent aromas reappearing in the aftertaste.
Tea Cakes, known as Beeng Cha, are created through an extensive process, overseen by the skill and experience of the tea master. Among the many steps; harvested teas are handpicked and dried in the sun to remove the initial moisture. They then undergo firing in a wok and then delicately hand rolled before undergoing a longer drying process. A shou pu’erh will undergo a further fermenting process before being compressed and aged.
The Nan Nuo Mountain Pu’erh is presented in traditional hand-made and hand-folded paper covering.
