Pu Er Sheng 2006 Yiwu Big Green Tree

Product code: CSTVI-178
Add to my notebook

The times where the Emperor received his tea tribute from Yiwu are long gone, however, the quality of the Pu er leaves harvested from that region are in increasingly high demand.

This cake is produced from larger trees, its rinsed leaves release a powerful camphor scent, ripe fruit and pine trees after the rain.

The liquor, full-bodied and resinous, is mineral with hints of incense and musk, often found in other more ancient teas.

Definitely a worthy addition to any collection of aged teas!

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