Product code: CSTVI-180
Add to my notebook

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.

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