Nannuo Shan Shou Pu-erh, 2001
A relatively new shou pu-erh from Nannuo Mountain, Xishuangbanna, Yunnan Province. Acquired from the same Hong Kong tea merchant as our 1997 Nannuo in 2003.
This tea has been in our possession for over eight years. In that time, short of the year it spent in Hong Kong’s humid environment, this tea has been dry stored in San Francisco. The result is a tea that still retains some of the dry, clean sweetness of youth, but is beginning to develop the darker, maltier character of an aged shou tea. We think this is a wonderful pu-erh to collect and age on your own.
