No. 103, Bao Shan Bai Ya, Sheng (raw), Old Tree, Spring Harvest

$20.00

         

A rare and delightful offering: early-spring harvested golden buds from ancient trees (gu shu) deep within Yunnan Province.  The downy puerh buds produce a clear, refreshing brew with delicate notes of sweet, fresh hay that give way to a suggestion of aged leather and hops.  An intriguing mineral, if somewhat flinty finish, lingers on the palate.

    All puerh may enjoy multiple infusions; for each successive steep, slightly increase brewing time, being careful to drain vessel in it’s entirety before adding fresh water to the warm leaves.
