2007 Vintage Organic Sheng Puerh Tea Cake
$65.00 — available on subscription
Green Puerhs are produced by harvesting the large leaf varietal (Da Ye) from China’s southern province of Yunnan. After being cooked thoroughly by pan-firing, no further oxidization occurs. The leaves are then sun-dried, steamed and pressed into a round disc called “Beeng Cha” or “Bing Cha”. This high standard Puerh is our very first organic Puerh offering, made entirely from our own blend of high grown spring harvest leaf. The unique fruitiness and well rounded mouth-feel is accompanied by a gentle wisp of smokiness and that signature Yunnan sweetness in the finish. Delicious now, the amount of natural tannin in this tea also ensures its suitability for long term aging.
Yunnan, China: With abundant rainfall, mild climate, and fertile land, Yunnan Province has ideal conditions for tea cultivation and is known as the historical birthplace of medicinal teas.
