Sweet + Nutty

[Bulang 2015] Ancient Tree Ripe Pu'er


As our Mansa Tea Society members requested an opportunity to purchase this tea a la carte, we made a separate product page for this tea.

Our Tea of the Month for August 2020, this ripe pu-erh is made from ancient tea tree materials from Bulang Mountain. It's rare to find such quality tea material made into ripe pu-erh, but this is one of them.

It has nutty oatmeal cookie and raisin notes with a unique balance of depth and clean finish. A true delight!

Note: [Bulang 2017] Ancient Tree Ripe Pu'er, available in 1oz for a limited time, is a cha tou, or tea rocks that form naturally during the fermentation process of ripe pu-erh. It also can be brewed more extensively (6-8 times for Bulang 2015 vs. 8-10+ times for Bulang 2017).

Tasting Notes:  Biscotti, oatmeal, almond milk

Terroir  Bulang Mountain, Xishuangbanna, Yunnan
