This classic loose ripened (Shou 熟) pu-erh tea is product of tea leaves harvested from Meng-Hai area in 2008. It has since been naturally aged and fermented yielding a classic ripened Pu-erh’s earthy aroma and smooth texture.
Pu-erh teas have a unique woody/earthy aroma. The more they are aged, the more they develop a floral fragrance and smooth texture, largely depending on the original quality of the tea leaves. It is very similar to premium wines in this regard.
