2011 Dayi / Menghai Tea Factory Xin Hai Bai Nian Ripe Pu-erh

The 2011 Dayi Factory (previously known as Menghai Tea Factory) Xin Hai Bai Nian cake is a special edition cake to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 1911 Revolution.  It's a ripe tea (wet pile fermented), with a heavy proportion of tips in the mix.  

This is consistently one of our favorite ripe teas.  The tea is sweet, clean tasting, complex, creamy, and of course woody/earthy.  Persistent notes of vanilla.

Clean stored in Guangdong Province for 10 years.
