Description

Our 20 Year Aged Iceland Pu'erh is a fine aged raw (sheng) pu’erh from Mengku Iceland Tea Garden in Shuangjiang County, Yunnan. Iceland tea 冰岛茶 is a famous and highly sought after Yunnan tea with a rich history recorded back during the Ming Dynasty (before 1485). It is grown in a small village that sits isolated 2,000 meters above sea level along the once-bustling and absolutely historical Ancient Tea-Horse Road. 

Picked from large, wild ancient trees (over 100 years old) and is composed of whole, unbroken twisted large leaves. It is said that the leaves of Mengku trees are dark green and soft, with an especially strong fragrance that is very unique. 

When the tea is initially steeped, it has a slightly woodsy aroma, then releases a smoky floral richness. This Aged Iceland pu’erh totally comes alive after the first infusion- it is incredibly smooth, with a slight camphor, incense like note. It has a strong chaqi that is smoked, smooth, fresh and has just a touch of astringency.

If stored properly, this tea will keep well and continue to age beautifully. For the best tea drinking experience, we recommend using a gaiwan and enjoying multiple infusions.

This is how to do it:
1 TSP or 1 BAG
8oz / 200ml
205F / 95°C
1.5 - 3 min

Great! Filled with fruit aroma, clean, smooth, astringent but the bitterness disappears in the mouth after one or two seconds.

I've tried to brew this 20 yr Aged 'Iceland' Pu'erh many times, many ways: weak, strong, 2nd infusion... No attempt has yielded any interesting aroma or taste whatever. It's clearly the most bland, tasteless tea of ANY type I've ever had. Markedly weaker than any of the pu'er varieties I've tried before.

I simply can't comprehend the 5 star reviews from other buyers here --- they are describing a totally different product than I received. I'll be adding what's left of it to my compost bin.

I was suprised by this tea. I was expecting a darker, more "aged" taste, this tea is very clean tasting and still very "green". A lovely thick mouthfeel, a little astringencey in the first infusions which fades quickly. The wet leaves smell faintly smokey with a nice hay aroma coming forward. The taste is very sweet and lingers in the whole mouth for a long time. Also this tea has obviously been processed and cared for very well. The leaves are still all in tact and the ratio of buds to leaves is very high making for a nice rounded flavour.
At this price it's a real bargain for age and quality. If you store this tea correctly it will develop nice fruit flavours I believe.
