This golden Pu erh offers a rich and complex taste with woody and delicate chocolate flavors. Its velvety infusion, free from bitterness and low in theine and tannins, is a dense and deep brick red. Lovers of aged teas will adore this tea as it was post-fermented for 5 years. Its flavour is reminiscent of leather and plums.
To make Pu Erh Shou tea, fresh leaves are manipulated similarly to preparing black tea by withering, drying and rolling. The precious leaves are then spread for a few days in a room kept at high temperature and humidity, thus accelerating the post-fermentation process.
