We are very happy to introduce this delicious and refreshing Raw Puer (Pu-Erh) that was harvested in April 2016. The tea has been stored in our shop since then. The tea has a very rich and broad drinking feeling with a sweet flavour that is creamy and soft. This tea is perfect for mid-day drinking.
For some of you might have tried our 2016 Loose leaf Raw Puer (Mao Cha), this is the same tea but it has been compressed in to a round cake shape. As the tea is compressed, it will taste slightly more mature than the loose leaf version, but it still has strong fresh aroma with hint of young leaves notes.
The tea is from a very natural environment and harvested from 150 to 300 years old tea trees that offers strong body, bold taste and a three dimensional sensation on the palate.
This cake would also be good choice to appreciate a young Raw Puer tea's character, but it would also be a great choice for ageing to mature the taste further.
