People who has been searching for delicious and valuable aged raw pu-erh tea will immediately notice this cake we are carrying. This green tree logo has been a symbol for one of the finest quality raw Pu-erh teas one can find, and we are honored to deliver it to you with this awesome vintage that has been stored in Taiwan for years.
How shall we write about its character? We feel the original description on its wrapper already did an excellent job, so we will just translate it directly from the Han characters:
普洱奇種 Pu-erh's rare varietal 獨特配方 with unique recipe
條索肥厚 Rolled leaves are fat and thick 方顯本色 to show its truth
湯色黃明 Color is in bright yellow 金圈俊顯 with golden circle handsomely displayed
滋味濃烈 Taste is pungent and thick 香高悠長 with long lasting and rich aroma
光澤油潤 Its luster is oily tender 美如烏金 as beautiful as dark gold
*Please order a sample first (before ordering a whole cake) to try this tea. Some people will find the Taiwan storage too "wet" for their taste, others will love it.
