Product Description:

Details A fine Chinese tea cake made from wild ancient tree ('gushu') leaves. The tea leaves are picked from wild trees which over 500 years old.This is how our farmer Cao Yan Mei describes her tea:"Compared to other puer teas, our puer is characterized by dark color tea leaves with white buds that produces a bright yellow-orange tea liqour. You will first experience full and intense flavors that has a slightly fresh bitterness to it on the surface of the tongue, followed by a balanced fragnant sweet finish. Spring tea leaves of this puer are from forests in Man Zhuan Mountain, with excellent natural conditions to grow tea leaves. Even after finishing your cup, the fragnance will stay on the bottom of your tea cup, it's a tea beloved by people who really know about puer cha."Six Famous Tea MountainsThis fine raw puer tea cake is sourced directly from a farmer located at one of the 'six famous tea mountains' in Yunnan: Man Zhuan Shan. Puer tea leaves from large wild tea trees in these mountains are considered the best available.The six famous mountains are a group of mountain hills in Xishuangbanna, known for its perfect natural conditions that provide the ideal environment for puer. Similar to wine this produces unique taste profiles.Raw Puer versus Ripe PuerThere is an important distinction between raw and ripe puer and the answer lies in the way it is processed. Both types are wilted and fried after picking. However, ripe puer is also pilled and dampened to articificially increase the speed of post-fermentation, before they are pressed in tea cakes. The puer on this product page is a raw puer tea cake.Drink Now or Store for Later?According to the farmer, this high quality sheng puer can actually be enjoyed directly in its first year. In contrast, mediocre sheng pu erh need more time to ripen before it obtains a complex aroma and smoothness of taste. Whether it's a good or average puer, we always advise customers to try a few cups of pu erh every year while it ripes. Puer is a very mysterious tea and there is nothing more beautiful than experiencing the transformation of taste over the years.Does this Puer Increase in Value over the Years?Like a good Bordeaux wine, is expected that the price of good sheng puers increases over the years when stored properly in a cool, dry and well ventilated place.
