Pu er Sheng 1994 7542 Da Kou Zhong

Product code: CSTVI-180

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.
