Spring 2016 "Beneath an Emerald Sea" Sheng / Raw Puerh from Crimson Lotus Tea :: Seattle Inventory

$ 149.99

We don't have much of this left. When it's gone, it's gone. This tea has been stored in our temperature controlled Seattle storage since 2016. This is a very nice tea that has aged quite well.

South of the Tropic of Cancer the rich green forested hills of Yunnan look like a rolling emerald sea during Spring. Drinking this tea is like swimming in that ocean of flavor and aroma. It's fantastic. This will brew thick and creamy. It's both floral and fruity with an occasional note similar to unsweetened baking chocolate. There is an early bitterness that lingers. It is often astringent. Later steeps get sweeter. This tea has stamina and can brew for a long time.
