$16.00

  • 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.



    鱼尾冠  'FISHTAIL CROWN' - behind the Chinese name of this tea.

    Also known as 太清鱼尾冠 'Tai Qing Fishtail Crown', it is one of three traditional headdresses in a Taoist tradition; it may be worn only by the head of the Tai Qing school.
