SHENG PUER (Pu-erh) - 2007 Quan Ji - Raw Puer Tea

Our traditional style 2007 Quan Ji Raw (Pu-erh) is quite fascinating and has a wonderful range of flavours and scents and has good storage potential as well as the option to enjoy it now. The tea liquor is already showing good signs of ageing with a deepening amber colour. 

This 2011 Puer has been lovingly made from quality first flush spring leaves from ancient trees with average age of 100 to 200 years old, with a picking standard of one bud and two tender leaves. These Old tea trees provide greater and more complex nutrition to their leaves  as the central root of the tree goes deeper and wider into the soil to gather nutrients from the many layers of undisturbed earth. The leaves from these old trees also produce a robust and long lasting flavour with a long finish.  You find that the forest setting where these trees grow adds a complex floral aroma to the leaves.

This tea is a good value option for those looking to explore this fascinating style of Puer (Pu-erh) teas.
