Product code: CSTVI-164
Add to my notebook

Originating from ecological plantations (Sheng Tai), this Shou Pu er was compressed in the traditional form of the bird's nest (tuo cha).

Its liquor, opaque and deep, has a dense and silky texture, enhanced with classic notes of damp undergrowth and roots (licorice). Subtle aerial nuances of incense and oat flowers confer lightness and softness to well-rooted tea.

An entry-level aged tea of excellent quality.

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