Old Hong Kong Raw Pu-erh Tea

1980's vintage - unknown harvest

Type: Raw Pu-erh Tea (unfermented)
Production area: Menghai, Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province

Taste characteristics:
The allure of an aged pu-erh is that it is transportive. It is like an oldies song or an old photo that reminds you of time and place almost forgotten. It invokes feeling of nostalgia and contemplation. This Old Hong Kong aged pu-erh does exactly that. During the last century, before ripe pu-erh was created, pu-erh lovers in Hong Kong, enjoyed pu-erh tea that had been warehoused in humid basements along Victoria harbor, a storage that caused the tea to transform from a grassy and vegetal taste to an amber and mellow brew in a matter of a few years. Brewed to a burgundy hue, this tea is velvety smooth and mellow, yet not lacking a rich mouth-feel and sweet finish.
