    Nannuoshan sheng pu’er is famous for its trademark sticky rice sweet aromatics. This well-aged cake from Wang Yanxin has a “storied” background. It was originally sold to another Qingdao tea vendor who wanted to sell the cake under his own brand and repackaged the tea. When he got out of the business, Wang Yanxin bought the tea back at the original fresh tea asking price. She is sharing this with us because of how outstanding the aging is on this elegant cake. The original packaging and nei fei was from the Yunnan Agricultural Research Institute, and cakes in mint condition sell for over $100 in China, but we’re passing on Wang Yanxin’s discount as a “scratch and dent” cake since it is missing the original nei fei. Nevertheless, the flavor and aroma are beautifully balanced and full of deep rich complexity.


  • 'Most pu’er does become more complex over time. Astringency mellows out, darker and richer flavors come through. Textural complexities become more pronounced. Starting with an intriguing young pu’er of high quality with lots of textures and flavors at play will increase your chances of graceful aging.'
