2013 Da Xue Shan Raw Puerh
A sweet and complex pre-Qing Ming picked sheng (raw) puerh from a protected area in Yong De County, Lincang Prefecture. Made from 300 to 400 year old tea trees grown at an altitude of between 2200 and 2750 meters.
The buds and leaves are thick, coming from recently re-discovered wild tea trees so you'll want to steep this tea a bit longer than you normally would steep a puerh. The aroma hints of wild flowers, as the tea trees grow amongst wild azalea trees. The taste quickly turns sweet.
