Tang Xiang Ripe Pu-erh (1992 vintage—autumn harvest)

Weight: 50 grams or 100 grams loose leaf
Type: Ripe Pu-erh (fermented) loose leaf
Grade: 3 & 4
Production area: Menghai, Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province

“Tang Xiang” translates to mean “sugar scent or “sweet fragrance.”  The incredibly clean aged ripe Pu-erh offers a thick, yet very silky and smooth, mouthfeel. The flavors are multi-dimensional, depending on the water temperature. When brewed with boiling water, the tea is rich, dark, and warm. Using water with lower temperature, the “tien” (meaning sweetness) starts to emerge, along with many other flavors. What is remarkable about this tea is that in addition to the “tien (sweet),” there is definitely the “gan” (cooling sensation) that coats the entire mouth and throat, giving rise to a very relaxing and mouth watering experience.  The superb quality of this tea suggests high quality base leaves used for this tea. Without a doubt, this is a rare find. To quote my tea master with only slight exaggeration, “This is a tea that is worth mortgaging your house for.”

Customers have made these comments about Tang Xiang Ripe Pu-erh:

"Wonderfully complex, I can hardly pull myself away from taking in the many fragrances…dark and rich, like some kind of rare, unique and hard-to-find sustainably-sourced coffee…Overall, this 1992 Ripe Pu-erh from Bana is a pure delight. This kind of tea that makes me lose all sense of time as I get lost in the taste and aroma and complexity of it."
