Earthy + Rich
[Menghai 2009] Old Tree Ripe Pu'er
Have you ever walked the forest after a rainfall? The moist ground with wood chips that bring rich earthy aroma and a calming comfort that you want to feel after a long day. This ripe pu'er (or pu-erh) feels like the perfect weekend getaway in the woods.
Perfectly smooth and rich, this 11-year-old aged tea has a balanced mix of cinnamon red buds and leaves that are handcrafted from the leaves of century-old tea trees in Menghai, Yunnan Province. The dark mahogany liquor is warm with earthy and woody notes, and the velvety body lingers with a surprisingly refreshing quality. This tea will set a new standard for your ripe pu'er tea.
The tea also pairs well with creamy cheese, such as Brillat Savarin, coconut baked goods, and dark chocolates. As an added benefit, its fermented properties will make this your go-to digestive tea with after a heavy meal.
