“Chang” and “an” are two Chinese characters that translate to mean “long term stability.” Good health is a key ingredient for one’s stability and tea drinking is an integral part to achieving good health.
Unlike most ripe Pu-erh, Chang-an Ripe Pu-erh is made from the Spring harvest of old-growth arbor trees. Hence, the tea is thicker, richer and more nuanced than most ripe Pu-erh. Due to its affordable price at this time, it makes a very good tea for everyday consumption. This tea is expected to become mellower and sweeter over time. This is a perfect time to stock up this tea and take advantage of its low price.
