Myanmar Pu er Shou 2012 Guogan

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTVI-207

An aged tea made from the leaves of trees of up to 100 years old in the Guo Gan region of Myanmar. An area inhabited by minorities of Chinese origin.

Processed in the prestigious Menghai factory of Yunnan, a light fermentation gives this tea a pleasant scent of wet bark and fresh mushrooms.

Its infusion bears the classic aromas of Shou Pu er (wet wood, garden soil) lifted by subtle notes of prunes, licorice and a lively hint of citrus.

*Please note that any cakes purchased may have slightly reduced in weight (up to 10%) due to changes in climate and relative humidity.
