Recommended for raw pu-erh enthusiasts looking for a high quality pu-erh to become an integral part of their regular tea rotation

Made of tea leaves from ancient trees, or gushu, this raw pu'er tea is full of complex flavors. After the first initial brews, you will notice a hint of rose petals that develops on the nose. It also has a lasting honey and roasted nut notes that permeate even after many brews. If you are brewing this tea using the gongfu method, expect to brew this tea for 15-20 times. Highly recommend for pu'er connoisseurs.

    Lovely afternoon tea session

    This pu'erh is lovely - it has a fresh feeling sweetness to it, with aromatic floral honeysuckle and orange blossom notes accompanied by the taste of lightly roasted nuts tossed in a light drizzle of honey, with a fruitier undertone more like an overripe nectarine - but soft. Mmm!!

    New favorite puer!

    I love this tea! I steep it throughout the day and it is very tasteful with each steeping. The tea gets sweeter after each steep, which creates a very interesting experience. I also have great experiences with the owner of the company - ashley. Ashley gives great tea tastings!

    Highly Recommended!

    Tasted this side by side with a few during a fantastic event at the Baccarat Hotel. This was definitely one of the most outstanding Pu’ers. The taste evolved with every pour and it was such a fun experience. If you are like me, a complete novice in Pu’er, I would recommend this to try!

    Would love to see how this one ages

    Fresh but fermented taste, with a pleasing bite. It teased getting sweeter in later infusions. Would love to see how this one ages.
