A treasure to be savored. Made in the Spring of 2009 with leaf from 400-500 year old ancient tea trees, this earthy Shu (ripened) tea from Menghai, Yunnan consists of almost entirely hand gleaned buds. The top of the loose Shu grades, it yields a smooth and full flavor with sweet hints of dried fruit and caramel. This is a very sought after tea for real Pu Er lovers.
Brewing: 1/2 tsp, 212 deg, 2 min, 4 infusions.
