This is a classic traditional pu-erh tea that has been stored in the "Hong-Kong-stored-style."  "Hong-Kong-stored-style" typically refers to the tea having been stored in conditions similar to pu-erh tea that has been aged in conditions similar to those in Hong Kong, ie., an environment that was humid and controlled.  As a result, the color of the leaves and the tea broth is darker and the mouthfeel is very smooth, resulting in a tea that can 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.

for 50g

Use 5g of leaves per 6 ounces of water. Quick rinse the leaves with boiling water (212F) before brewing.

Precious Heritage Raw Pu-erh Tea

Precious Heritage
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.
