A young Ripe Puer from the Ailao region of Yunnan Province in China, this tea is a perfect buy for those wishing to try aging their own teas. Deep and soft earth notes give way to a sweet finish so unique to this area of tea production. A touch of bitterness and pile taste is present, but much less than most teas this age. A very affordably priced Shou and one that will only get better with age!
