Try this tea first
Product code: CSTVI-251

This is a young Pu er tea from the remote forests of Yongde (Lincang), in the central Yunnan province, southwest China. This terroir offers us leaves of the highest quality,  and artisanal technique steeped in tradition and expertise.

The composition of the tea, a blend of long leaf and buds, combines vegetal and fruity (marmalade) flavours, balanced by tannins and a sweet finish reminiscent of maple.

Harvested from 70 year old tea bushes, this tea can either be enjoyed now or stored. At this price, it is accessible to regular drinkers and those who wish to put a cake aside to age.

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