This 2002 cake raw Puer was produced at Fuhai tea factory* and kept in clean Guangzhou dry storage for as long as we can trace its history. The soup is burly and full of flavor, with some lingering astringency when pushed. It has a strong returning sweetness and flavors in the deep woody realm. An excellent example of clean dry stored Guangzhou Puer. This tea is ready to drink now as an aged tea, or could be aged further as you see fit.
Each cake is roughly 357 grams with samples available.
*As with any tea, we think it is best to sample and make sure you like the tea based on the qualities it offers rather than the numerical age or pedigree
The exact date/factory of this cake are a bit difficult to peg (our best estimate is early 2000's), but the tea has a smoothed out aged taste, clean storage, and quality material. The cakes are made of jiaji (甲级 - grade A material) and are very bud heavy. The fragrance and flavors are already well into a middle aged woody sweetness. Suitable for drinking now or further aging for the long term.
For those new to aged Puer tea, the cakes are often oddly shaped, have stray bits of this and that, and the wrappers have bug bites. Nothing unusual for a cake with a bit of age, but worth mentioning.
This Little Yellow Mark 2002 cake was produced as a private order (special commission) for a Taiwanese customer in 2002 and stored in Guangzhou dry storage soon after production. The soup is soft, sweet, and smooth. Flavors or honey and gentle flowers sit atop a woody base. An excellent example of quality dry storage. This tea is ready to drink now as a middle aged tea, or could be aged further into a beautiful old puer tea.
