This loose Sheng Pu-erh has been picked and processed in the spring of 2007 in Yiwu Mountain (易武山 - Yiwu Shan), Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan Province.
Look carefully at the tealeaf. You see its colour? There is no bright green there. Because the green starts to disappear after several years of storage. Each year, the leaf gets darker and darker, shade by shade. This is clearly visible.
The taste of this pu-erh is very delicate, sweetish, refreshing. There appear shades of dried fruit, dried apricots, figs, menthol.
This tea leaves a long, sweetish aftertaste with hints of dried apricots, prunes and menthol. The infusion is transparent, saturated, and dense. The color is amber and deep.
This Sheng Pu-erh is surprisingly easy to drink. It completely lacks the astringency. And has practically no bitterness. The flavour is mild and noble. This is one of the best representatives of Sheng Pu-erh teas. This is a work of tea art. This is a very strong tea.
