We are very happy to introduce this Puer mao-cha harvested in early April 2016.  

Mao-cha and Sheng Cha are two terms for nearly the same thing in the area of puer.  The mao-cha is the loose form of the raw puer tea leaves right after sun dried and before compressed into a round cake or brick shape, mao-cha defines the tea from the perspective of tea processing and sheng-cha from a consuming view-point. 

As the process of raw puer tea is very close to that of green tea, the flavour of mao-cha is very refreshing floral with an up-lifting aroma, and this freshing flavour is normally diminished once tea is steamd and compressed. So this mao-cha at the moment is at the right beginning stage of the aging and would be a great introduction of raw puer. They can also be matured, requriing only two to three years due to the faster rate of natural fermentation in an uncompressed state.  

The tea is from a very natraul enviroment and harvested from 80-300 years tea trees in Menghai county of Yunnan Province.  Gives extraordiarily strong body, bold taste, three dimensional sensation on palate - feel very rich and broad drinking feeling. Sweet flavour, creamy and soft. This tea is delicious and refreshing, perfect for mid-day.
