From Yunnan Sourcing

Our “Crimson Rooster” is a ripe pu-erh tea cake composed of a blend of tea leaves harvested in Spring 2016 from the Mengku region of Lincang. The tea underwent wet piling in Menghai (Xishuangbanna) under the supervision of the same wet piling master as our 2015 Green Miracle and 2016 Immortal Monkey.

The tea is strong and full-bodied and produces a thick dark tea soup. The tea has some dark chocolate-like bitterness and a quick sweetness that follows and blends with a spicy dried fruit taste that lingers in the mouth and throat, in a most comforting manner. This is a medium level of wet piling, the leaves having little green color, but lacking the mud-like consistency of heavy wet piled style ripe. This is a traditional process ripe pu-erh, processed in a decades old Menghai tea factory, and overseen by a wet pile master with decades of experience.

As with any young ripe pu-erh the wet pile taste will be with it for the next 2 to 4 years (after 2017) depending on the storage condition.
