2017 'VECTOR' Raw Puer
VECTOR is a raw (sheng) puer cake made with a blend of material from various areas of Xishuangbanna.
We designed this tea as an ideal every day drinking cake for our own personal tastes. We think this tea punches above its weight for the price, due to the use of some obscure material that is not subject to fame or hype.
The tea has a medium body and not too much bitterness, with a good measure of sweetness especially in long, late steeps. Approachable as an entry point for people new to puer, and solid enough to for jaded junkies like me to drink with abandon and put away for the years to come.
The tea was pressed in November 2017, using a mixture of material from Spring and Autumn 2017.
Each cake is 200g, with 5 cakes per tong.
This particular tea is compressed slightly tighter than our other productions. The use of a tea knife is recommended.
