Tea moistening: Pu’er moistening is necessary. If it is the tea stored for many years, then repeat for many times with boiled water. And the water must be flushing in order to wake up the tea and eliminate the smelly odor.
Tasting notes: The medium-sized leaves, ranging in color from dark to light brown, give off the fragrance of beaten earth in the sun. The deep, very dense liquid has an astonishingly fine texture.The mouthfeel is complex, offering earthy aromas of raw beet and potato. These are mixed with more succulent notes of dark chocolate, salty caramel and ground cherries. The long finish leaves a refined mineral sweetness. This is a generous tea whose primitive beauty has been polished by time.
Recommended infusion method/accessory: The gong fu cha technique and a zhong or teapot.

Product Description

Fragrant and old aroma, taste thousands of year's affection for Pu'er

Unfermented Pu'er tea is known as the "drinkable antique". The most distinguishing quality is "the older, the more fragrant" from other tea. The unique quality and old aroma emerge in the process of fermentation storage. Generally speaking, the quality of unfermented Pu'er tea storing for 5 years is different from the initial quality of itself, yet it will take 8 years or even more time to get better flavor. There is an old saying in Yunnan that "the grandfather makes tea and the grandson drinks it".

Unfermented Pu'er tea

Pu'er tea is the specialty of Yunnan. It takes Yunnan large-leaf sun-cured tea leaves as materials. There are the fermented and unfermented teas. Tea made through natural fermentation is unfermented tea while that fermented artificially is fermented tea. And the unfermented tea could gradually turn into the fermented after a long-term natural fermentation. But it takes too long, usually about 5 to 8 years for "natural fermentation". Both unfermented and fermented Pu'er teas are produced into diffused tea and condensed tea. And condensed tea is divided into square tea, Tuo tea, and round-shaped tea by shape.
