Add to my notebook

Here is a 357g cake with the trademark ideogram for the tea in yellow, produced in the Menghai factory from grade 7 leaves, i.e. large leaves.

Rinsing releases warm forest, cereal (oat) and fruity fragrances. Its liquor, opaque and supple, boasts a sweet and tangy density evoking molasses or dry fruits (dates). Fine milky and pepper accents enhance the character of this Shou Pu er with typical deep, rooty notes.

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