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.
