Description
 
This Aged Wild Tree Puerh is from uncultivated trees in the Ban Chang and Nan Nuo Shan areas of the Yunnan province. This tea is 10 years old and was naturally aged in the Guandong province. All puerh teas start their lives as green puerh or raw tea. The tea is then either fermented by adding water to the dried leaves or naturally aged. The natural oxidation slowly turns the green tea into a dark puerh or cooked tea. Originally, the tea was reserved to produce one of our signature green puerh cakes. However, the project never materialized so the leaves are still loose. We have decided to offer the Aged Wild Tree Puerh so customers can sample this uniquely combined duo, without having to buy the entire cake! The active bacteria level in aging the tea in a more humid climate produces the unique and clean earthy notes associated with aged puerh. But there is more. The aging has compacted the fruit and sweetness unique to green puerhs which is revealed in consecutive steepings. After inspecting the leaves, some are starting to turn brown, but many of the leaves are still green. If properly aged this tea can be enjoyed for more than 20 years.

Preparation:
In brewing the Aged Wild Tree Puerh, use water near boiling. The tea brews up to a copper color and tastes so smooth with the typical earthy characteristics of an aged puerh you might expect, yet slightly green. You can definitely enjoy the tea now or put it aside for years to come.
