Lang He is most famous for their ripe cakes. And this is the cake Mr. Yang, the founder of Lang He, chose to serve us when we visited his factory in Yunnan. This cake has personal meaning to him as he believes it to be one of their best. Made in 2006, only a few cases remain.

Excellent

Review by Al
I rarely buy more than one cake of a tea, but this one is special for me. It's so balanced, clean and pleasant to drink. I often have a problem with ripe pu-erh tasting muddy and, well, confused in its direction. This is simply a great tea. I think any lover of shu pu-erh would enjoy it. (Posted on 10/21/16)

Lighter shu pu er

Review by Nico (from bartending.ch)
Surprisingly light taste, aromas of filter coffee, bean paste and leather, then in the far back some fresh flowers, roses and mint. No bitterness at all, but an unpleasant chalk-like aftertaste. Interesting to see this lighter style of shu pu er. (Posted on 1/10/16)

Mid 2000's treat

Review by LouPepe
8-10 grams into 100 ml gaiwan.

Off the boil water,, infusions 10, 10, 15, 20, 20, 40,..

The lighter fermentation on this Shu is very evident upon inspection. Even with the age on it.

Mouthwatering tobacco on the nose in both dry and wet leaf. Honduran cigar comes to mind on the dry leaf but turns to sticky pipe tobacco after multiple infusions. A lovely aroma of licorice from the soup hints at malty sweetness on the taste. The soup is quite thick considering it's bud make up. Toasted grains, anise, vanilla, and a bit of cedar. Cooling spearmint rears it's head upon later infusions. Nice relaxing Qi even into infusions 8 and up.

This is one great Shu pu'er!. Glad I got to try it. I recommend treating yourself to a sample of this. (Posted on 3/15/15)

Great ripe tea, golden gushu material

Review by Howard
With 8 years under its belt, this tea is still young and juicy, with light, intriguing flavors. Hard to pull away from this, after diving in. Spell binding quality ,just hard to quantify. Sublime, I love this tea, and so did the master yang who produced it. (Posted on 2/26/14)
