2007 Sheng (Raw) Pu’er Aged Tea
This 13 year-old raw Pu’er tea is a post-fermented, aged tea produced in Dali, Yunnan Province, China from a respected tea factory.
Pu’er is well known for its many health benefits, which are said to include:
- lowering blood pressure and preventing arteriosclerosis
- reducing body fat
- reducing internal heat
- relieving fatigue and
- aiding digestion
This last one is the reason that, amongst Chinese, it is regularly drunk before, with or after meals.
This tea brings classic Pu’er woody, earthy sensations that mellow with each infusion, resulting in extremely smooth notes of wet wood, tobacco and molasses with a thick mouthfeel.
