Today I am reviewing a 2005 Changtai “Nannuo Mountain” raw pu-erh tea cake.
Tea: Nannuo Mountain
Origin: Nannuo Mountain, China
Amount of Tea: 7 Grams
Brewing Vessel: 120ml Clay Teapot
Type of Water: Bottled Water (Reverse Osmosis)
Rinse Time: 10 Seconds – 10 Seconds
Steep Time: 15 Seconds – 20 Seconds – 25 Seconds
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.
