Pu Er and Aged Tea
China

Liu Bao Shen Xiang 1987

Product code: CSTVI-189
Add to my notebook

Thirty years of Guangxi's humid climate has benefited this aged tea, slowly developing its large curly leaves. Its opaque and rich liquor is velvety and deeply marked by its woody (root) and mineral character.

Shades of leather and dried fruit (prune) accompany the fine scent of ginseng (Sen Xiang) that tickles the palate. A long mineral finish leaves behind a sweet aftertaste.
