2014 "Gamechanger" Shou / Ripe Puerh Tea 357g Cake

$ 49.99

This is a really interesting shou! It is a blend of Lincang, Simao, and Xishuangbanna gardens. There are BIG leaves in this cake. It has a medicinal aroma with hints of warm baked bread. As the fairness cup cools it leads into a sweet, creamy, and floral aroma. Smelling the wet leaves is like being in the kitchen rolling fresh dough.

This has a lighter wodui ( wet pile fermentation ). It has some aged sheng personality.It is very interesting and it is very body warming. The liquor is clean with a dark amber color. It is very easy drinking with a creamy and slick body and a slightly herbal aftertaste. 

I wouldn't call this a strong tea but it has a lot going on and is very interesting!

This is a 357g cake. The material is from 2012, the wodui was done in 2013, and it was pressed in 2014.

The design on this cake was created by us using a combination of AI and human artist created elements. The final design was a creation and composition of our own making. We intended this cake a conversation starter for the role of AI generated art being used in commercial products. We are giving people the option of purchasing this tea without the wrapper. It will be shipped in a plain white wrapper if you prefer.
