2001 "Yiwu Da Shu Tuo Cha" Sheng / Raw Puerh Tea 100g :: Seattle Inventory
Our friends pressed this big tree (da shu) material in 2001. It comes from Wangong village in Yiwu. Wangong is a few miles north of Yiwu township and in a very diverse ecological environment. This is a very special tea and we are excited to be able to offer it.
There is a slight smokiness in the dry aroma. As you being to steep there is a rich orchid floral note with the tiniest hint of grassiness. The aged aroma is very clean. The tea brews with an immediate thickness! The tea is very smooth and cooling in the throat. There is a very mellow and centering energy. This tea is not aggressive at all and really showcases the delicate beauty of aged Yiwu material. The huigan (returning sweetness) builds in the throat from the first sip. This beautiful tea stays smooth even with a heavy hand. As you progress through the steeps it evolves into sweet peach flavors.
