Picked up from the highest elevations of the famed Yi Wu region during spring, this stone-pressed fruity-earthy tea is a good representative of a young sheng pu-erh. The liquor is sweet with a light astringency. Notes of straw, dried apricots emerge. Later steeps reveal peach and pear.
A very pleasant tea that remains balanced on the palate for a very long time.
Use a gaiwan or a small yixing/ ceramic pot to steep this tea.
Use around 5-6 grams for a 150 ml gaiwan. Keep the steeping time short, just a couple of seconds.
