2022 Naka Pu'er Shengpu, 200 gr. Stone-pressed cake
A beautiful new harvest, our selection of which comes from the wild tea forests of Naka village, situated in Mengsong district, Menghai county, Xishuangbanna prefecture.
Its young narrow leaves are a rich deep green, to which a slight silvery tinge is given by the numerous buds covered by fluff, giving the cake surface a rough and natural appearance.
The liquor has a peculiar bright and delicate color, and its aftertaste is remarkably fragrant. In the first few brews it releases a sweet nutty aroma of hazelnuts, with a hint of vanilla. The persistent aftertaste presents a floral and very balsamic hue, which refreshes the palate, and then leaves a sugary feeling which lasts until the succeeding brews, when a zesty aroma slowly emerges.
Naka village stands on the eastern side of Huazhuliangzi, of which it preserves a slight bitterness that is here only hinted at and enriches the very soft flavor of the first brews; yet it slowly fades, leaving space to a more long-lasting sugary aroma.
