SUMMARY

Type: Ripe Pu'er Tea 
Origin: Bulang Mountain, Menghai, Xishuangbanna, Yunnan, China

An aged Ripe Pu'er made from 2008 leaves from Bulang Mountain, compressed into a mushroom-like dome (AKA Tuo-cha) in 2014. Having been aged and stored in Guangzhou for a few years since its initial production has allowed this tea to develop its signature Shu Pu "Basement" or "Old Book" aroma. And while it isn't a magical cure for baldness, it certainly is a tasty Ripe Pu'erh tea. 


TASTING NOTES

A woody, smooth and warming tea with earthy undertones, a thick, luscious mouthfeel and sweet aftertaste.

STORAGE

Proper tea storage is super important. Improper storage leads to flat, flavourless and potentially weird tasting tea. So as a rule of thumb, keep your tea leaves in an airtight container (the less air inside the better) and away from heat, light, moisture and strong odours.
