Pu er Shou 2011 Menghai Sheng Tai Tuo Cha

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTVI-164

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.
