Having made pure Nahan cakes in 2013
, we decided to do something different for 2015. We've made a special Lincang cake, comprised of a 50-50 blend of Nahan
and Man gang pu'er tea. Both tea gardens are in close proximity to Xigui, Bangdong
county. The aroma from the gaiwan lid is of broad beans, spinach, meadow, and hay. The emptied cup reveals notes of brown sugar, and sweet potato soup. As with our pure Nahan
, there is bitterness (of the good kind), which is softened by the Man gang tea. The tea soup is thick and vegetal. A chesty chaqi builds behind the lungs, and subtle huigan follows a few minutes later. Please enjoy!
