Light + Nutty
[Yiwu 2018] Wild Lao Raw Pu'er
This ancient tree raw pu'er (or pu-erh) is well-balanced and smooth with a lingering floral scent and a light roasted nut flavor. Hailing from the historical Yiwu mountain range in Yunnan, this pu'er serves as both an inviting introduction to young raw pu'er for developing pu'er enthusiasts and a staple of more experienced connoisseurs' tea collection.
If you like cheese, try pairing this tea with Etorki, a semi-hard sheep's milk cheese from the Basque Region. The savory and nuttiness in both the tea and cheese will become more pronounced.
