This is a Pu-erh (Puer) raw brick of 250g, made of tea leaves harvested from Bang-Dong area - one of Pu-erh teas' core production areas.
The leaves of this pu-erh tea were harvested in 2013 and have had more than 3 years of natural ageing and fermentation. It has all the characteristics of a good quality raw Pu-erh brick: strong full leaves mixed with some stems (essential for long term fermentation and internal transformation of a pu-erh brick). It is a good value pu-erh tea for daily consumption or collection for further ageing.
this is an aged pu-erh tea that has been stored in a storage for many years before coming onto the market. The paper wrappings of the pu-erh teas are traditionally made very thin to facilitate the tea’s post fermentation process - to allow them to ‘breath’ through. There is therefore an extreme high chance that the paper wrapping is not 100% intact after the many years of storage and the long distance transportation that followed.
Your understanding on this is much appreciated!
