Sheng Tai Chen Xiang (Premium Puer) Loose Leaf Black Puer 2008

Sheng Tai Chen Xiang (Premium Puer) Loose Leaf Black Puer 2008

Despite the name this is not a sheng (raw/green) puer. It is a shu puer . The name means that its fragrance comes from natural aging. Great care was used in the fermentation process and is evidenced by the tenderness of the leaf after brewing. In contrast, over fermentation will make the tea dark and the leaves tough.

This tea is grown in Xishuangbana in the area around old Puer City at over 2000 meters above sea level. The tea bushes there are from 60 to 100 years old. The leaves used are larger than those in Palace Puer, though it still has a lot of golden buds. When infused, tea color is a very clear brownish red. The flavor is rich, with a long lingering finish.
