From Yunnan Sourcing

In Autumn 2013 we visited several areas of Lincang, including Mengku and Yong De counties. Our famous “Mu Shu” pu-erh from old arbor tea trees has been a favorite among customers since 2011. This spring we decided to ask a local tea master to process tea picked from the old arbor (100-200 years old) tea trees that we used to make our 2011-2015 Mu Shu Cake. The tea was picked, briefly wilted, fried, then wilted again for about 24 hours before being dried in the shade.

The brewed tea is floral and sweet with a nice bitter and astringent mouth-feel to bring it into balance. Thick stout leaves and stems with prominent large buds make this tea very infusable. A sure bet for aging over the years, it will develop many rich textures and nuances.

This is an absolutely delicious black tea that I’ve been buying faithfully every spring for several years. Forgiving to brew, with a nutty caramel flavor, and an old-tree maturity and depth to the cup, this is a pleasure to drink any time of the day or year.
