Pu Er Sheng 2008 Youle

Product code: CSTVI-126
Add to my notebook

This tea comes from one of the six famous mountains north of Lan Cang River.

This area’s unique character is revealed right away with vegetal (buckwheat, tobacco), and spicy and woody (sandalwood) scents. The liquor is full-bodied and smooth, offering the expected aromatic complexity: sour fruit (prune), bitter (coffee), and a sweet finish.

A hearty tea for thrill seekers.

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