This one is treasure that we feel lucky to have happened upon. This is the primary example of what can be achieved with ripe tea. Looking at the cake you may know it is a ripe cake, but the aroma and flavor of the tea perfectly mimic a well-aged sheng. CNNP isn't necessarily known for their ripe teas, but some magic of time and care have made this cake a must-have. It displays a balanced amber color and gives a slow but distinctive wooden-earthy fragrance with obvious ginseng sweetness. The delightful complexities create a new dance on the palate with each steep and then linger.
