1998 Menghai 'Simple Farmer' shou (tume) pu-erh
Deep, clean, introspective, brimming with life energy!
These 100g tuochas were bought by a private collector visiting a small farmer in Menghai, Yunnan. Upon the visit, the collector noticed these tuochas stored away and asked about them. The farmer explained that these were experimental batches produced in 1998 (10 years before) by his sons who had returned from the city to help with the family business and were studying the 'wo dui' fermentation technique. The farmer didn't consider them high enough quality for business and set them aside. Our friend the collector however was deeply impressed by the tea and so are we. Deep, clean-tasting, introspective, brimming with life energy and wisdom. This is close to what the essence of tea is all about.
