Pu Er and Aged Tea
China

Pu Er Sheng 1992 Menghai Hou Gen

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.
