Being a person means never being sure that you are one.
RHIZOME is a raw (sheng) puer tea from a single area of forest in Menghai, Yunnan. The material comes from older tea trees growing in an amazing, lush natural environment, with no intervention except for picking and manual weeding.
The tea is noticeably thick in the mouth and with a strong sweetness that sticks around for a long time after drinking. The tea is mildly astringent due to its freshness but has a smooth and soft body compared to many teas, and is very pleasant to drink.
This tea will increase in strength and flavour over the coming months and years of ageing.
The tea was pressed in November 2017. Each cake is 200g.
