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.
