Thai Pu er Shou 2013 Old Trees

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTVI-258

A batch of aged tea from Doi Wawee in the mountainous region of Chiang Rai (Thailand). This is a small batch from old trees, pure and unblended. It is also an unusual fine pluck (1 bud and 2 leaves), as opposed to a tea that is sorted after manufacture. These elements create its exceptional characteristics.

The dark infusion has a structure both smooth and pronounced. A subtle candy-sweet flavour of liquorice bring the earthy notes of this tea to life. The finalé is is persistent with a pleasant mineral texture.
