Add to my notebook

This mature Pu er, almost 20 years old, originates in the Bulang Mountains of China. This terroir of Yunnan Province is prized for the quality of its leaves. This particular batch is pure Da Ye cultivar, ideal for improving with age.

The tea has all the classic, rich aromas of humid undergrowth. The liquor is dark, full and syrupy, filling the mouth with gentle earthy and spicy (cinnamon) nuances.

An all consuming tea.
