2004 Changtai "Green Jinggu" Raw Pu-erh Tea CakeTaiwan Sourcing
Like its cousin "Brown Changtai," this "Green Changtai" came from the same Jingu factory of Changtai Hao. You will notice the price of this cake is significantly lesser than the "Brown" version, this is thanks to its lesser fame. The quality though is certainly not lesser despite its affordable price.
Using wild material from Xishuangbanna region, this green sibling from Chantai Hao also bears an obviously "wild" nature but completely different terroir. Its overall character is less overwhelmed but much easier to enjoy with. You may also be surprised to find some floral note with this beautifully composed cake.
If you are wondering what was the tea philosophy of Changtai Hao back in the early 2000s but do not want to break your wallet, our "Green Changtai" can still create the same awe you will eventually enjoy on "Brown Changtai."
