Notes from our Chief Tea Officer:
This is a great find by David (our sourcing officer in China), as we rarely see aged ripe pu-erh cakes (shou pu-erh) of this size (100g). Elephant Hill is actually the name of the tea factory, it is known to make authentic "Menghai taste" (勐海味) pu-erh.
Elephant Hill has a slight rice like fragrance, combines with the thick and smooth mouth feel. Its Cha Qi is calm and warming, makes it a great evening tea for the colder months.
For raw pu-erh tea of the same area and vintage, try Red Rhythm 100g cake year 2007.
