Pu er Sheng 1983 Menghai

Product code: CSTVI-193

This loose leaf Pu er produced in the prolific Menghai tea factory and expertly preserved in Hong Kong will satisfy all amateurs of rich and balanced teas.

Thirty plus years of ripening have enhanced this tea which, once infused, offers a dense and opaque liquor. Silky and generously sweet, it carries its effects deep down the throat giving the impression of a gentle massage.

Nuances of wet wood, dates, incense and spices all lead towards a refreshing and minty finish, like we love them!
