    Lao Cha Tou - 2011 Menghai Ripe Pu Erh Tea


    lao cha tou

    "Lao Cha Tou Pu Erh" is known as the old tea nugget, which is formed during the Pu Erh piling fermentation process.


    During the piling fermentation, the temperature in the tea piles increase gradually, so that they can ferment via their interior enzyme and become ripe Pu Er. During the whole process, the workers need to stir and turn over the teas about 4-5 times, so that the heat wont burn the tea leaves. However, during the fermentation and stirring, the tea leaves themselves will excrete their pectins and soluble sugar, so some tea leaves cling together. After the fermentation, the worker will sieve these nugget out and pile aside.


    So the nugget tea is high fermentation compared to the common ripe Pu Er tea,  that is why its thickness, mellowness in tea soup and its infusibility are better than the other ripe Pu Er.Normally the nugget Pu Er tea contains many of the previous years nugget, so if store for several more years, it will demonstrate an unexpected aged aroma and sweet tea liquid.


    Storage method: Pls store all the Lao Cha Tou Pu Erh Tea in a dry & cool environment without any odor. The best storage environment temperature is between 10-35°C ; moisture degree is between 50-75°C.
