2013 Xiaguan Sheng Pumpkin Tribute Tuocha - 100g
- This pumpkin pu erh is made from high quality leaves including many small buds. The use of tea buds is intentional, as they change in a pumpkin like golden orange colour through aging.
- The first pumpkin shaped teas in history where offered as a tribute tea, hence the word ‘tribute’ in the name.
- This product is aged in dry-storage. The compression level is somewhat less tight than other Xiaguan tuocha, resulting in a more uniform and faster aging.
- The taste is remarkably fresh with a sweet after taste. There's a more apparant transformation of flavour throughout the steeps, relative to other sheng pu erh. The brewed leaves look tender and bright.
