Description

This is a magnificent plucking composed of very long leaves that have been only minimally shaped. This batch will delight fans of Pu Erh with its fruity, vegetal and mineral notes. The fresh notes are sustained by a slight acidity and bitterness, meaning they linger in the mouth.

A first encounter with Pu Erh can be surprising, even disconcerting, but if you come to appreciate its intense, powerful flavour, it becomes a firm favourite. Because it has a low theine content, it can be consumed in the evening as well as during the day. Pu Erh is well-known for its beneficial qualities: it is reputed to aid digestion and help detox the body, making it an excellent tea to enjoy after a meal.

China, which lays claim to being the birthplace of the tea plant, is home to the oldest tea plants in the world, in Yunnan province. In the Nannuo mountains, there is an plant estimated to be around 800 years old, apparently the oldest tea plant cultivated by humans! Known for its tea gardens that date back to the Tang dynasty, this mountain has undergone many changes over time, but remains a beautiful place of pilgrimage for tea connoisseurs.
