This tea is advertised as a Green Pu’Er. As my knowledge of Pu’Er is pretty poor and this being a Korean Pu’Er my knowledge is even poorer. Being described as mellow is very precise. There is only a faint smell of sweet from the brewed leaves and even less taste from the tea. I will have to try multiple steeps to really get a handle on the flavor, if there is any.
Aini Ancient Tree
Mellow yet powerful, these leaves pack the scents of a misty morning in the old growth forests of southern Yunnan. The golden brew, as it swirls in your mouth, awakens the taste buds and leaves a sweet aftertaste. A tea to be sipped, not gulped, it is a pleasure with breakfast. You may also find it delightful in preparation for a session of yoga or tai chi.
Tea master Yang Si’s ancient trees grow on steep mountain slopes, amid wild orchids, moss-covered trees and transparent springs. The Aini people attribute general health, energy enhancement and proper digestion to this wonderful tea.
