Pu Er Sheng 2009 Mengsong

Product code: CSTVI-128
Add to my notebook

Here is one of our first galettes with the Camellia Sinensis signature on it. The leaves and buds of old tea trees from Mengsong mountain. To the nose the infusion gives off vegetal (dandelion) and woody (incense) notes. Its rosy liquor is generous and its light bite softened by a sweet and floral finish and pleasant persistence. A spirited Pu er with great potential for longterm aging!

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