This is a classic traditional pu-erh tea that has been stored in the Hong Kong warehouses.  This style of raw pu-erh typically refers to teas that were stored and aged in environments that are humid, such as places like Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia.  Due to the high humidity and the resulting changes of the leaves, the color of the tea broth is darker and the mouthfeel is very smooth, resulting in a tea that can sometimes be mistaken for a ripe pu-erh.  This style of pu-erh is very popular among pu-erh drinkers in Hong Kong.

Velvety smooth and mellow, this tea is clean, thick and lively.  In addition, it offers a cooling and sweet finish that is savory and relaxing.

Old tea with qi! 01/13/2021
By Cody
My wife relies on this tea to pick her up during overwhelming and busy days. The murky, warm brown tea broth smells of delicious wet bark , freshly turned straw and quickly transport me to a dreamy barnyard. A sweet and lovely mushroom quality that didn't overpower or put me off (i don't like the ripe puerhs as much) . For us, the qi energy this tea delivers is second to no other puer in level of positivity and drive. A special tea in our collection.

This puerh is a great example of why HK style storage has been so popular over the years. This raw puerh has a rich and clean flavor without any undesirable storage odor or taste. Very nice feeling in the mouth and the tea is calm and relaxing in the body. Subtle wood and mushroom and a pronounced sweetness in all of the steeps. A wonderful tea to enjoy any time of day, my favorite is in the early evening. Great experience to share with friends.

My fav!! 05/08/2021
By Olivia Oldaker
It's been my favorite aged raw for the last couple of years on this site. So well balanced, rounded deep tea. It's great for gongfu, prefers seasoned clay pot to open it fully. I keep it for a special occasion such as a deep meaningful conversation or decision making.
Our responseThis tea takes me back to my days growing up in Hong Kong.
