Yiwu Large Leaf 2005
Indigenous Tree Shengcha Pu’er:
Produced using raw material from Yunnan indigenous trunk tea tree and darkened through optimum maturity, Tea Hong’s Yiwu Large Leaf is not only a fine representation of ancient style dark tea, but also a unique gastronomic experience and a great digestive. Because of our proprietary maturing process, its quality compares superlatively against other shengcha well matured for many longer years. A rare quality to impress without depressing the wallet.
Net weight: 70 g (2.5 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
Herbaceous, earthy aroma that is distinctive yet mild, with a high note of forest freshness. Clear, deep amber infusion that tastes clean, round and sweet with accents of fresh herbal roots and grains hinting wild ginseng and fennel seed. Refreshing, sweet aftertaste.
Always blanch well before infusion with 100°C water. When using the gongfu approach, both a gaiwan or a genuine Yixing pot are suitable, but will yield results that appeal to different preferences.
