Spring 2016 "Kunlu Xiao Qiao Mu" Sheng / Raw Puerh from Crimson Lotus Tea :: FREE SHIPPING
We purchased this material in the Spring of 2016. This is small arbor tree material from trees under 100yo that grow in a garden near the top of Kunlu Shan. We've let it age as maocha for more than a year. We're really pleased with this material and wanted to offer it pressed. We have pressed only a small handful of these cakes. We have 10 for sale. What we have is being sold only as cakes.
This tea brews thick! The first steepings are almost oily. This tea has a vibrant color that lasts into the teens. The aromatics in this tea are sweet and fruity with hints of chocolate.
