Lao Ban Zhang Pu-Erh

Packaging Type
This 96g cake was manufactured in the Manwei Village of Menghai, Xishuangbanna in Yunnan province. It's rare to find a cake this small, as most pu-erh cakes are 357g. The smaller size will let you get a sense of the wonderful flavors pu-erh can offer without committing to too much tea! This Pu-Erh is a Sheng style. Sheng Pu-Erh is differentiated from shou Pu-Erh in that it can ferment naturally over time, given the right conditions.
