Appearance & Taste

2022 Yiwu Special Made Pu-erh Ripe Tea Cake 357g

Unlike other Pu’er teas, which have a very rough mouthfeel, the taste of this tea is very gentle, mellow, and sweet. Tasting the tea carefully, a very delicate plum and honey aroma emerge. Since it has been aged for over four years, it also has a very special Chen fragrance. The tea soup is pure and clear, dark wine-red to amber in colour.

Taste: Earthy, Sweet, Woody
