2005 Changtai “Nannuo Mountain” Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake Review

Today I am reviewing a 2005 Changtai “Nannuo Mountain” raw pu-erh tea cake.

Tea Specifications

Brand: Changtai

Vintage: 2005

I’m sure some people like this sort of tea, but it does not fit my palette.

The flavor of this tea reminds me of over-ripe fruit, herbal medicine, and that wet-storage note that is common in these sorts of teas.

It’s densely compressed and brews slowly.

Not my favorite tea.

Flavor notes: Herbal medicine, over-ripe fruit, damp basement, wood, and flowers.
