Product code: CSTVI-98
Add to my notebook

Created with the expertise of the great factories of the late 20th century, this Shou Pu er is identified with the tea character "cha" in orange print.

The aromas of leather, stone and damp wood emerge from the rinsing of the leaves. Its brown liquor is crystalline and softly deploys its sweet mineral flavors, evoking the purity of a spring water!

Incense and candied fruit nuances enhance this balanced and refreshing tea.

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