How would you describe the flavors of fall? Imagine going on a hike at the peak of foliage, hearing the crunch of the colored leaves as you breathe in the fresh scent of autumn. Or do you think of freshly baked pumpkin or apple pie with spices and nutty aroma that permeates your kitchen? This raw pu'er (or pu-erh) certainly has the quintessential fall flavor. 

This naturally fermented tea features a balanced mix of hazelnut and charcoal buds and leaves. Its honey amber liquor has well-rounded musky notes with a floral aroma and a lasting dry sweet finish. You can even pair with your favorite seasonal pies.

For tea connoisseurs, we also recommend tasting this tea side-by-side with our [Bulang 2017] Raw Pu'er, which is from the same terroir but two years younger.

    Second time around just as good

    This was a gift years ago and I savored it for the whole time, and was sad to run out. I decided to stock up and get the big bag and it's just as good as the last batch. I love the smokiness and clarity, and even though I bet there are many other teas to try, it's also great to have a reliable standby.

    Bulang 2015 Raw Pu'er

    I personally wasn't a huge fan of the musky scents and flavors, however I did enjoy the floral notes and hazelnut undertones. Quite a lovely raw Pu'er.

    The tea itself was delicious!

    Opening the bag straight away I got a whiff of walnut aroma which opens up to hay, cedar, and florals with a rinse. Jammy apricot and a hint of tobacco on the palate, the cedar and hay returning for a long finish.

    Solid puerh

    This is a solid puerh. All the listed notes are spot on: I get a lot of musk after the second brew, and a lot of pleasant floral notes. It’s interesting to see how much aging affects the tea, comparing this to the Bulang 2017.

    Bulang 2017 Raw Pu'er

    I really enjoyed the smoky yet sweet taste of this Pu'er, and every so often getting hit with the subtle hint of bay leaf. Quite a lovely tea.
