This is a fantastic Gong Ting Shou Puerh. Gong Ting, which translates as "Emperor's Court" is the smallest grade leaf containing many tiny golden buds. This grade Puerh tea is the sweetest and creamiest. You should try brewing it with more leaf and for longer steeping times to discover how thick this tea can be in mouth while never getting bitter. This tea comes from Lincang, which is one of the 3 major or important areas for puerh tea along with Xishuangbanna and Simao. The Dayezhong (large-leaf variteal) leaves were harvested in 2015 and processed as mao cha. They weren't fermented until 2018 and they weren't pressed until 2020! A whole cake weighs 200 grams.
It was a long time in the making and the result is fabulous!!!
