2017 'DISCRETE' Ripe Puer
DISCRETE is a ripe (shou) puer tea from southern Yunnan.
Amongst countless ripe teas of various grades sampled during our travels, this one held its own against them all. The tea is smooth, sweet, and clean, with a creamy, warming mouthfeel and lingering cinnamon-sweet aftertaste.
The tea was piled in early 2016, and pressed in November 2017, meaning there is no funk left and the tea is ready to drink.
Each cake is 200g, with 5 cakes per tong.
