From Yunnan Sourcing

This little tea cake is composed entirely of first flush of spring sun-dried silver needles from the county of Yong De in Lincang. It is stone-pressed by hand in the traditional manner. Our silver needle cake can be aged over the years and will develop a textured and sweet taste.

This tea should not be confused with silver needles white tea, which is heat dried and cannot be aged. Our silver needle cake is composed of sun-dried material and was processed as a traditional raw pu-erh.

Beautiful amber liquor. It’s quite tart and astringent, and relatively full-bodied. Overall not quite my thing, but okay – I’m not generally into young sheng anyway. This one is less complex than others I’ve tried. It was significantly better in brewed in duan ni than in porcelain; the clay took some of the astringency out and let a vaguely fruity flavour creep in.
