Why We Love It: With aged pu’ers, details of origin often get lost over time. This rare, complex tea has been well stored and maintains a deep-woodsy profile. The aroma of this tea immediately transports us to a cozy cabin library in the woods, surrounded by old books and big leather couches. Great aged ripe pu’ers of this caliber are hard to find, and we’re excited to be able to share this one with you.
