Wuliangshan Raw Organic Pu-erh Tea - Autumn 2021
An organic pu-erh tea cake from the high elevations of pristine Wuliangshan mountains in Yunnan, China. Despite its young age the tea has pleasant flavor that are mild, packs quite a bit of qi with a good potential for aging. The tea comes from 17 year old certified organic tea garden that is located near the Lancang River. It has an average elevation of 1500 m.
The leaves of this cake was picked in October 2021 and pressed in the summer of 2022.
The tea yields flavors that recall dried fruits like apricots, hard cheese like gouda and nuts. The flavor notes are clean and the finish sweet.
The leaf grade used is one bud two leaves. The leaves still appear green in the cake and after steep. We believe this tea will acquire more layers of flavors with age, although it is already very enjoyable.
