This is a good example of the unique flavor of a bud-dominant pu’er blend. Gong Ting is a technical designation for blends of shu pu’er that use only golden buds and very young small leaves. No large leaf material or long stem goes into a classic gong ting, giving it a very sweet, spiced and focused flavor with a rich velvety texture. This Gong Ting cake has over a decade of age, bringing out deep nutmeg spice and tingling minerality.
