Elemental Puerh - 2019 Bangdong Autumn Sheng Puerh Tea Dragon Balls

$ 8.99

This is the material we have pressed in the past as Moon Princess. It is a fantastic representation of Autumn Bangdong tea. It brews well outside of its price range. The aroma is vegetal with hints of sweet corn. The body is thick and immediate. The flavor is orchid sweetness with a slight bitterness and some astringency. There is a sweet aftertaste that lingers. The tea can brew quite strong if you let it. 

"Elemental Puerh" is our collection of single origin, direct sourced, hand rolled puerh tea dragon balls. These are high quality examples of individual mountain personality.

Each wrapper is stamped with an infographic containing all the important origin details. You have the year of picking, the season of picking, the mountain name and symbol, the distance from the equator, and special indicators for wild or old tree material.

Each dragon ball is individually steamed and hand rolled. They weigh 8 grams and are perfect for a session in your gongfu2go portable tea brewer or gaiwan / teapot. Each order contains 6x 8g dragon balls.

This material is from Autumn of 2019 and was picked from trees growing in Bangdong.
