$37.50

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

Weight: 1 Cake (250 Grams)

We are proud to offer a Certified Organic "Lasting Aroma" (余味) Ripe Pu-erh Tea from Yunnan.  This tea was grown in the area of Simao and was harvested in April 2017, and wet piled in the summer of 2017. 

This is a blend of grade 1 and Te Ji ripened tea leaves blended together in a tippy recipe style.  It is sweet, fruity, and floral with full-bodied long lasting taste and aroma.  It can be infused many times more than most ripe pu-erhs!  Cha Qi is very nice and reflects this tea's pure origins.

The leaves used in this tea cake were harvested from organically cultivated tea pure assamica varietal tea bushes growing at an altitude 1300-1350 meters (4300-4450 feet) on summit of Ma Wei Mountain (just west of Pu'Er City).  The tea is picked and processed into sun-dried mao cha, and then wet piled (wu dui) for 45 days, transforming it into ripe pu-erh tea (熟普洱). 

250 Grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)
