Da Ye Shu Xiang (Large Leaf) Loose Leaf Black Puer 2005

Da Ye Shu Xiang (Large Leaf) Loose Leaf Black Puer 2005

In China, puer tea is sorted into grades by the size of the leaves, with the smallest leaves being 1st grade and the largest being 10th grade. Da Ye means "large leaf" and our Da Ye Shu Xiang is made from 8th to 10th grade leaves. Puer tea from smaller leaves has a richer taste, while puer from larger leaves is smoother.


In this black puer tea the large tea leaves are twisted tightly to create a deeper flavor. This is an excellent tea for new black puer tea drinkers, with more sweetness and less earthiness than other black puers. The tea color is bright red, and the flavor is reminiscent of cooked jujube fruits (similar to dates).
