Raw (Sheng) Puer pressed in 2019, using from slightly aged maocha (loose tea) from spring 2014.
Xishuangbanna, Yunnan Province, China
Smooth, sweet, aged character
This puer cake comes from aged material, cleanly stored by the farmer in Xishuangbanna, leaving a good amount of character development but with no humid or off notes. The tea itself is smooth, soft, and sweet, with a touch of underlying bitterness and a deceptive amount of strong body feeling. The material is from older trees in an excellent forest environment and a less famous provenance keeps the price lower than teas from hyped areas.
