This Ripe Puerh is harvested in Banzhang’s Ecological Preserve, at higher altitudes with strong biodiversity. This is sourced from the surrounding mountains that are below the most prized tea in the world— Lao Banzhang Puerh.  The tea consists of spring buds, harvested in 2012 from the tea trees within the ecological preserve. The aroma is like mulled wine, dark chocolate, and petrichor— and the flavor is very well rounded petrichor, light sweetness, and very deep and thick liquor. If you like thick but clean puerh that lasts many steeps, this one is for you.

Characteristic Tasting Notes:

- Dark Chocolate, Thick Petrichor, Clean Woody Body.
