Repave was made with aged puer tea material from 2007, which was stored in Menghai for 7 1/2 years prior to being pressed in November of 2014. The soup is already a dark bronze color, sweet and soft. The material is from Hekai. This is the second and final pressing of this material. Some of the wrappers were stamped incorrectly as 2006.
An old arbor Menghai blend. Thick body, lingering kuwei [pleasant bitterness], and plenty of oomph. This tea is a continuation of last year's New Amerykah. The blend is slightly different, focusing more on sweetness and body than on bitterness.
A gushu [old arbor] Yiwu blend. Thick body, sweet, fragrant in the soup, with a lasting and complex finish. Fifteen steeps is not a problem. Some sessions lasted in excess of twenty steeps.
This tier of tea rarely sees the light of day in the open market.
Pure ancient arbor Spring gushu tea from Manzhuan. One of the six famous tea mountains, Manzhuan has a long history of puer production. This raw puer is soft and supple with a taste of honey and sweetness.
The 46&2 cake is pure early 2013 Spring gushu Jingmai material, stored for one year in Jingmai, then pressed in the Spring of 2014. Sweet, thick, and fragrant, the tea has already got a little bit of age. Much smoother than most of the teas from our 2014 production.
