This shou pu-erh is a production from the 1990s by a lesser-known tea factory in Kunming, under China's famous CNNP state export brand.

Though CNNP cakes from this era can be hit or miss, this one is a solid find! The tea liquor is deep red with the brilliant clarity of crystalized beauty and a rich aroma that hints at its age. Soft yet silky on your tongue; there's sweetness too as you take in every sip. Soft yet stimulating at times too; just what your taste buds need after all those nights awake to try to get some work done.

A great value for a 90s shou.

Stored under moderately dry storage in North America. 

Origin: Menghai, Yunnan Province, China
