I drink the tea you drink I drink you drink the tea I drink we drink the tea the tea the tea.
We scored a small amount of slightly aged raw puer maocha (loose tea) from spring 2014, and pressed it in 2019.
It has been very cleanly stored by the farmer in Xishuangbanna, leaving a good amount of character development, but with no humid or off notes.
The tea itself is smooth, soft, and sweet, with a touch of underlying bitterness and a deceptive amount of strong body feeling. Some sweeter floral and slight fruity flavours are beginning to surface.
The material is from older trees in an excellent forest environment, and a less famous provenance keeps the price lower than teas from hyped areas.
Each cake is 200g, 5 cakes per bamboo wrapped tong.
