Add to my notebook

A young Pu er tea selected deep in the Yongde forest (Lincang) central Yunnan.

It took an extensive search to find this warm and heavily aromatic gem. The sweet taste strikes right through its intense tannins with maple and waffle aromas. Harvested from 75 years old trees, this tea can be enjoyed now or put aside to age. At this price, it suits the everyday drinker and the collector alike.
