Pu er Sheng 2005 Youle

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTVI-243

From Youle Mountain, one of the famous 6 of Xishuangbanna, in the Chinese province of Yunnan, this Pu Er has been conditioned in large baskets, as is the tradition for teas of the Liu Bao style. Although the tea leaves keep minimal traces of this process (light stacking), we present it in loose leaf.

Its original transformation, combined with its ageing in Hong Kong, creates a frank tea, with subtle complexity that takes us through mineral notes, undergrowth, autumn leaves and mushrooms, ending with wood, aromatic herbs (rosemary).
