Pu Er Sheng 1986 Xia Guan

Shaped in tuo cha (bird nest) of 250g by the Xiaguan tea factory, this 30 years old Pu Er is to be tasted with attention and care. A generous rinse allows aromas of damp undergrowth and roots (beetroot) to prepare the infusion of a clear mineral liquor, deeply marked by notes of lichen and black earth. The sharp and slightly metallic attack slowly evolves towards a sweet finish with fine accents of berries, spices (anise) and camphor. A rare tea, deep and long lasting in taste, enhanced by subtle soothing effects.
