This Lao Cha Tou(Aged Loose Tea Knot) produced and stored since year 2008 by Meng Hai tea factory. But it was made from aged raw material over 10 years.
Each tea knot was in bright brown colour that naturally compressed during the loose leaves piling process.
Cha Tou has a very low volume of production, around 2% of the total loose leaf tea. The tea factories pick them out of the mass production raw materials and store them separately. Therefore, it is rare and special.
The tea soup has a rich amber colour that quickly shifts to a darker shade of red. Smooth and thick.The infusion has a strong Shu(cooked) Cha flavor, a little bit sour taste and dry, sweet aftertaste under throat.
Not every Pu-erh fan likes the strong Shu(cooked) flavor of LAo Cha Tou. But if you like Pu-erh Shu Cha and want to try something special, this is definitely your best choice.
*We strongly recommend to wash and risen this tea for at least 3 times before drinking. Don't worry, Lao Cha Tou is durable and could be steeped for over 10 times.
