Even for us, it's rare to see a ripe pu erh of such amazing quality: the leaves are fine and delicate covered by highly visible golden hairs. You might know that pu erh gets better the longer you let it age. This is true, but it can only be as good as the quality of the leaves allow. With this emperor's grade tea cake, the sky is the limit when it comes to the quality of taste and aroma.

This will even make more sense when you steep this tea: the soup is orange dark, but still transparent, bright and clear. The taste is smooth and sweet, while the texture is thick, yet wonderfully delicate. Last but not least, the aroma: it's beautiful and has unique notes of oranges and lotus.

A Treasure from Yunnan

This pu erh tea from the birthplace of tea itself: Yunnan. This area’s perfect natural conditions for growing tea result in unique, earthy flavours that deepen and change with each steep. Tea leaves of this cake are hand-picked with care, one by one, and carefully processed. The tea farmers really masters the methods of post-fermentation given the knowledge that has been passed on for many generations.

For optimal further fermentation, store this tea in a well ventilated and dry place away from bad odours.
