About 2012 Blang's Special Pu'erh Ripe Tea Cake 357g

Our 2012 Blang Special Pu’er (Riped) uses large sun-dried Shaiqinmao tea leaves (Yunnan big-leaf variety) from Bulang Mountain. It comes in a tea cake, which is produced by the Biming Tea Factory in Menghai County, Yunnan province.

Blang Mountain is located in Menghai County, Xishuangbanna, Yunnan, which is a well-known and ancient Pu’er-producing area with very advantageous natural conditions. The Blang people were the first in the world to grow and process tea leaves, and countless generations have grown up cultivating the local Pu’er tea trees. The Pu’er tea that is produced here has legendary status.

    This tea has everything. Strong but smooth, with no bitter aftertaste. So many pots from one cake, too.

    This tea manages to be strong but not overpowering. All the warmth and character you’d expect but with a lovely, sweet palate.

    I have been a huge fan of your tea. I’ve been a regular user of the HeyChina’s teas. I experienced digestive issues and I was in great need of something to help me. I read up a lot of about tea before ordering it I’m so grateful that I did.
