Product code: CSTVI-70
Add to my notebook

This loose tea composed of whole leaves and delicate golden buds was dry aged in Hong Kong by Mr Chan. The infusion promises warm notes of leather and undergrowth. Its soft and mineral liquor is adorned with vegetal (lichen) and fruity fragrances typical of old pu er sheng. Its finish is simply sublime with the length and depth of its minty accents evocative of wintergreen.

Pu Er Sheng 1994 7542 Da Kou Zhong

Marked by the famous 7542 seal, this Sheng Pu Er cake sourced from Taiwan where it has been patiently preserved. After one or two rinses, it will release a few darker leaves as well as scents of humid wood, fresh spices (fennel) and leather. Its dark-red liquor is silky with a slight edge of pepper and has a mineral and earthy body reminiscent of lichee and beets. This Pu Er which holds the humid storage seal will surely please any fan of milder, earthy teas.

Pu Er Sheng 2000 Menghai

Impressive big leaves make up this Pu Er from the late 20th century. Intoxicating mossy fragrances (lichen) blend with the comforting aromas of root vegetables (potatoes, carrots) and dried bamboo. Its bright liquor affirms dynamism in a strong initial mouthfeel with tangy, sweet, mineral sensations. Its aromatic bouquet is rich with a refreshing after taste felt long in the breath. A thoroughly enjoyable vibrant tea!
