The Organic Sheng Pu-erh Tea Experience: Herbaceous and refreshing
Downy silver tips that resemble a classic white tea adorn the twisted leaves of this raw pu-erh tea. The appearance of the infusion is a lovely pale golden-green with almost a rose tinge – rose gold! The aroma evokes an earthiness with a slightly sweet floral note at the end. Each subtle sip brings notes of wildflower honey and sweet, green hay.
Tasting Notes: light, earthy, subtly sweet
The herbaceous liquor offers flavors of earth, dried apricots and vegetal notes. A refreshing astringency lingers in the finish.
