2016 Wild Ontario Gold Needle Shou Pu-erh, 100g Cake

$16.00

After sitting with this tea since 2015, I am finally ready to let it out into the world.

Wild Ontario Gold Needle is made of pure gold needle grade from a fermentation batch consisting of wild picked leaves from trees around 100 years old. The body is rich, creamy, and powerful, with some bitterness hinting through the sweetness from time to time. I highly recommend a ratio of 5g/100ml for this tea if you are brewing gongfu style!

There is tons of complexity here, but for the initial release, I'm going to leave specifics up to you. This has become one of my all-time favorite teas, and I'm super excited to get feedback on it!

This tea also has a brother from coarser grade leaves from the same fermentation batch, which was pressed in late 2015, and can be found here. I like to sometimes blend a bit of the gold needle into the other one for a different experience.

700 cakes in total pressed with this material!

Better pictures coming soon :-)
