Warm + Rich

[Menghai 2009] Old Tree Ripe Pu'er

$23

Handcrafted from buds of old tea trees in Menghai, this pu'er (or pu-erh) tea has warm yet refreshing quality. It serves as a smooth introduction to aged ripe pu'er for developing pu'er enthusiasts. We recommend more experienced connoisseurs to try our Laoman'e Ancient Tree Ripe Pu'er for more robust and complex flavors.

If you like cheese, try pairing with Brillat Savarin, a cow's milk cheese from Ile-de-France. This triple creme cheese will accentuate the rich and earthy quality of Menghai Old Tree Ripe Pu'er.
