A most unusual tea. The tannins are all but a memory here. I suppose this is partly why it is a tribute tea. The beverage seems very mellow with a hefty load of earthiness on the palate. The infusion is densely brown, almost the color of coffee. Not a ton of character in the tea but I am somewhat new to pu-erh style so I am going to have to revisit it. Maybe I will notice a subtlety I missed the first go round. It is a tea that comforts the stomach.
Organic Golden Puerh
Throughout its long history, Puerh has been reserved by the Chinese imperial court as a “tea of tribute”. Golden refers to the high percentage of prized tea leaf buds found in this extraordinary tea. Made from small leaves this tea is sweet, smooth and lightly aged.
