From Yunnan Sourcing

“Buddy” celebrates the spirit of companionship that dogs and humans share. Buddy is also a young stray dog that we fostered for a couple of months during the summer of 2018.

This ripe pu-erh tea cake is made from 2015 harvested and wet piled tea from the Da Hu Sai area of Mengku. The tea was dry aged in Kunming until it was pressed in June of 2019! The tea is smooth with a natural sweetness and thick malty taste!

Furthermore, $5 for every cake sold will be donated to “Central Texas Ruffugees” to support their efforts in rescuing and rehoming dogs. With 500 cakes in total, we will generate a donation of $2500!

Loosely pressed cake from YS composed of mostly smaller leaves (looks to be mostly grades 2-3). Brewed gongfu style in a clay gaiwan. First rinse produced light red liquor. First proper steeping (~10s) produced deep red / browniss liquor which persisted throughout the session. Started ti wash out around the 6th infusion.

Liquor is not particularly aromatic— slight mineral notes on the nose once brewed. Liquor has a balanced mouthfeel (erring on the lighter side) with a distinct maltiness and a subtle sweetness. Subsquent steepings open the tea up, revealing hints of barley and cornflower. Finishes quickly and does not linger on the palette for long.

Overall a tasty ripe pu erh from YS, although not overly complex. Planning to age the remainder of this cake to see if anything changes in the coming years.
