This 96 g. 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 357 g. 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 Sheng style. Sheng Pu-Erh is differentiated from shou Pu-Erh in that it can ferment naturally over time, given the right conditions.


Black tea.
