Description

This robust ripe Chinese pu'erh was harvested from semi-wild Arbor trees in Menghai in 1991, and dry stored in China's state owned tea factory in Kunming under specialized care. 20-year-old 1990s Rare Wild Arbor Ripe Pu'erh is mellow and smooth, with flavors of dark bourbon and a honey like sweetness.

It is highly aromatic- like the scent of fallen leaves collected in a damp pile, grassy, dusty trees with hints of camphor, when you infuse the tea, the clear liquid is super smooth, no astringency, and unique.

Tea Varietal: Semi-wild Arbor Tea Trees
Farming Methods: Bio-dynamic Organic Farming
Production Methods: Plucking--pan firing-rolling-drying under the sun-packing-wo-dui-aging.
Vintage: 20 years

For the best tea drinking experience, we recommend using a gaiwan and enjoying multiple infusions. If stored properly, this will age beautifully; maturity will only bring out the smooth character even more.

Our Rare Wild Arbor Ripe Pu'erh is pure and natural, without any added flavors or fillers.

This is how to do it:
1 TSP or 1 BAG
200ml
95°C
1.5 - 3 min

My favorite so far.

I really like this tea. Normally I find a slight bitterness in pu erh teas but this is very mellow and sweet. There is a smoky wood flavour about it. And the second brew is as delicious as the first.

Sweet wetland to the taste. This is how tastes a chinese pu-erh but this one is really sweet with a lightly smoky odor. Perfect.

This is my favorite Pu erh. It reminds of a rich glass of bourbon. Very complex, hints of honey, and just strong enough. I find the 5 year old naked Pu erh to to be too weak, and the 1980's Liu Bao tastes like dirt. This one is just right.

Also, the longer you steep this tea, the sweeter it gets. Leaving the tea alone for an hour or more is just fine, it won't get bitter.
