Our 1989 Suncha Blend originates from an ancient tea garden in Menghai county in the Yunnan province of China and utilizes the Da Yeh varietal. This Grade A blend is predominantly Shou (ripe) puerh but includes some Sheng (raw) puerh. This rich, full-bodied puerh blend has damp forest floor, woody, coffee, and chestnut notes. Our 1989 Suncha blend is earthy and mild with a sweet aftertaste. We highly recommend gongfu brewing for best results. This tea is not eligible as a free sample.
