This ripe (or Shu) Puer tea is made from spring harvested tea leaves from old tea bushes that are located the south of Yunnan near the boarder to Burma. Nice blend of Grade 1, Grade 3 and 4 tea leaves with medium fermentation level. Tea was compresed in August 2011 and have been kept in a dry storage.
Once you open the wrapping paper, you notice a strong and clean eathy aroma as if you are walking into a dry deep forest. The liquor is very dark with a nice clean and thick texture. The flavour is quite light at the beginning, but as you are drinking more and more, the taste will get stronger leave you a very strong, lingering sweet aftertaste. This tea is very good to drink now but will age and develop for many years to come.
