Early 1990s CNNP Shou
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 brilliant clarity, a sign of good quality for such an old tea. Soft and silky, with a sweet rice fragrance note. Comfortable and gently stimulating.
A great value for a 90s shou.
Stored under moderately dry storage in North America.
Origin: Menghai, Yunnan Province, China
