2001 Golden Needle Pu-Erh

This is produced by Menghai Nanqiao Tea Industry. This cake is made of wild, arbor tree leaves from Menghai area. This consists of a lot of golden buds, a tender spring material. Unfortunately it's becoming increasingly challenging to find such nice aged cakes. We break apart a piece of the cake and put it in a 2oz. tin.
