ancient pu'er palace vintage 2009
by rishi tea (1 review)
There are two types of Pu'er tea: Sheng (raw, green) and Shu (ripe, dark). Both originate from a rustic sun-dried green tea called Shaiqing. Shu Pu'er is made by pile-fermenting Shaiqing teas over a period of 85-120 days. Ancient Pu'er Palace is our top grade of Shu Pu'er, and is made using leaves picked from ancient tea trees that are hundreds of years old. Like fine wine, Pu'er tea has the ability to be aged and released in vintages. Young Shu Pu'er teas (2-3 years) typically have an assertive body and bold strength. The body and mouthfeel become richer and more integrated as the Shu Pu'er continues to age from 4-8 years.
I wasn’t a fan of this tea, very earthy taste and smell
