TaeTea (Dayi Tea Group, Menghai Factory), Yunnan, China

Made for those who want to take their first dip into ripe pu-erh, the level of fermentation and resultant funk is deliberately held back. The tea delivers as intended - a long, mellow of warming chocolate and pecan notes, delicately balance with a drier, woody finish. The brew is on the lighter end of shou pu-erhs, less viscous but easy to drink and envigorating.

Dry leaf: compressed, brown, with a blueish tinge, consistent material 
Taste: mellow, chocolate, pecan, some woodiness
Process: pan-fired, sun-dried, rolled, post fermented, compressed
Storage: Break up the disc in pieces and keep in a clay caddy. Clay pores and occasional opening introduces the right amount of oxygen that help the tea develop character over time.
