Origin: China, Yunnan
Flavor: Earthy, Woodsy, Wet Leaves After a Spring Rain, Slight Sweetness
Our ripe vintage puerh is a limited early spring tea from Yunnan province in SouthWest China. Aged for twenty years, our vintage puerh has gone through extensive oxidation, which provides a smooth, thick tea liquor. These tea leaves contain rich mineral content and fermentation over such a long time reduces the heady “funk” that younger ripe puerhs commonly have and produces a bold, rich earthy flavor, that has a slightly sweet taste and a reddish brown liquor. This tea comes to life over multiple infusions and just starts to come to life on the third or fourth infusion. This is a good tea to sit down with for a while to fully enjoy.
Tea shipped in our Teas New Jersey storage tins can remain stored in their tins for long periods of time. Tea leaves are best stored in dry, dark containers with little air and safe from odors. Our tins are small and compact with little space for air to sit. They are great sizes for storing and stacking. We recommend purchasing tea in one of our tins if you do not have storage that fits the above qualifications. However, if you have storage and are ready for a larger amount of tea, you might consider selecting our 3oz pouch option, which you could transfer to a tin upon receiving.
