Here is a loose leaf Pu Er from the Menghai region which has since aged under dry storage in Hong Kong. The infusion of the large leaves, in multiple shades of dark khaki, fills the air with the fragrance of damp undergrowth and camphor.

Its slightly spicy finish (cinnamon) is marked by a generous persistence of tannins.
