2008 Yongpin Hao Old Nugget Pu-erh Tea
Yunnan is a region in China known for growing large-leaf tea of producing top quality Pu-erh tea. High mountains covered by mist, with clean water supply from nearby rivulets, rich humus soil …these ideal conditions contribute a lot to the unique flavor of Yunnan Pu-erh tea, earning it a worldwide reputation. Our Yunnan Old Nugget Pu-erh tea was made of large tea leaves harvested in Xishuangbanna and it had underwent proper aging. You won’t be disappointed!
During Pu-erh oxidation process, some of the tea leaves will get stuck with one another and takes a nugget shape form as a result of heat and high compression.
Most old nugget pu-erh tea are just not that clean, with a lot of dusts. Yet this is the cleanest nugget tea I have seen. The Yongpin hao branded old nugget was made by a skillful master, in Fuhai tea factory, a factory with tons of experience in fermentation.
This tea brews a dark chestnut soup in color, very smooth, no bitterness or bad after taste. Good for 8-12 infusions. Highly recommended.
