Description

This raw puerh cake is made entirely of the 2012 first flush leaves from wild, high-growing tea trees that are up to 80 years old. The liquor has a bright, fresh aroma that, within a few years, will age gracefully into a cake with sweet orchid notes. The taste is brisk with the lightest astringency. It will mellow, maturing into an excellent and refined puerh tea.

Reviews

  • Very good value

    by Shi Chao on 15th of October

    This is a really enjoyable sheng pu'er which is priced very fairly for this level of quality. Distinctive 'orchid' overtones and a pleasant 'oyster shell' astringency, which trails of into a sweet aftertaste/huigan.

  • Nice balance of bitterness and astringency

    by SoCam on 11th of January

    Nice balance of bitterness and astringency but quite smooth with a slight smokiness. Not my favorite out of the 5 Single mountains on Offer but still a nice Yong De tea.
