DC T1 | 2020 OLD TREE, BAMBOO CONDITIONED COOKED PU ER
Surprisingly complex for it's age, we were delighted to encounter a demerara sugar like sweetness contrasted by a rich aromatic profile reminiscent of english pipe tobacco. Medium body, smooth texture even with more aggressive brewing.
Type: 熟 (Shou | cooked) Pu Er
Fermentation: piled and matured in bamboo baskets
Harvest: 2016, old tree leaves from Menghai
Additional handcrafting (2020): steamed, pressed into pieces of wild bamboo, roasted and sun-dried in summer.
