2008 Ripe Yiwu Puer Cake


Older. Richer. But not too much stronger.

Although this is a mild, slightly thicker tea, don’t let that fool you.

This tea’s considered one of the cool teas on the block. Being grown in the Yiwu Mountains (considered as one of the most important among the Six Famous Tea Mountains 六大茶山). What does that mean for you?

Nothin' but phenomenal taste.

This puer cake is over 10 years old, which is old enough for time to kindly grant a developed taste profile while young enough to still have some grassy notes.

The pleasant aroma and soothing quality had us sold and will surely do the same for you. Most of all, it’s easy to drink and a great entry point to puer for those who might be hesitant to give puer a shot.

What’s more is Yiwu teas have got history. They were the talk of the town back in the day, with the town being Yiwu, an ancient town in the northern part of Mengla County, Xishuangbanna Prefecture in China’s Yunnan Province. This was when the Southern Silk Road was being actively used for trading.
