Type: Ripe Pu-erh (fermented)
Grade: 1-4
Production area: Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province

Taste characteristics:
Produced by Yunnan Six-Famous Tea Mountain Tea Industry Co., Ltd., this tea won the Gold Medal at the 4th Annual Guangzhou International Cultural Festival Pu-erh Tea Competition in November 2005. Fermented relatively lightly, this tea is less earthy than most traditionally processed ripe pu-erhs and is simply delicious. It leaves a nice sweet aftertaste after you sip the tea. The cake is organic certified by Certified-Organic OFDC China.
for a 357 gram cake

I prefer darker earthy sho pu-erhs so I was not sure how I would enjoy this lightly fermented tea but I am thoroughly impressed. It is my favorite tea at this time.
