1999 Second Millennium Broad Loose Leaves Raw Pu-erh Tea. (Maocha)
A rare stock of Pu-erh tea of broad leaves in 0 grade or above. We've imported this batch of hand-picked tea leaves from old trees in Meng Ku Yunnan before it is made into compressed tea. Traditionally processed and hot air-dried to maintain consistent quality and aged in our professional warehouse in Hong Kong for the last 2 decades.
The color of the tea soup is clear chestnut red with a medium camphor wood taste with a hint of roast flavor as a result of hot air drying, strong hui gan and refreshing to drink. Infused tea leaves are soft and evenly brown.
