Type: Ripe Pu-erh (fermented) Grade: 3 & 4 Production area: Menghai, Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province
Taste Characteristics: Chen Xiang literally translates to "the fragrance of aged" Pu-erh tea. Formerly known as 16-year-old Ripe Pu-erh, this tea has aged to achieve the "Chen Xiang" sought after by Pu-erh connoisseurs. Its mellow, smooth aged ripe Pu-erh flavor is not only satisfying to the palate and soothing to the stomach, it is also calming to the soul. Drink it after a meal or whenever you feel overwhelmed.
One of my favorites 08/12/2020 ByBronson Dowd A delightful and light tea, as well as a great value for its vintage. This is a very smooth and clean tea that still has a bit of an earthy edge that I love in a pu-erh. The broth is beautiful and sustains its flavor across brews longer than some other aged batches have for me. It makes for a particularly good tea when the day has slipped away and I'm sitting down for tea later than usual. Our responseYes, this is a classic aged ripe pu-erh collected by my tea master.
My morning tea ceremony 12/01/2020 Byelana golden I love this tea and the ritual of brewing it as instructed, then pouring it gently into a small Chinese cup, sipping it slowly one cup at the time, welcoming a new day. This tea and the ritual are both calming and energizing. It has been my morning routine for a few weeks now, and I just ordered a new package of this tea.. Our responseSo glad to hear you are enjoying the tea ritual. It is not only good for our body, but for our soul as well.
Smooth Bargain08/10/2020 ByHenry Mueller If you like pu-erh with no rough edges, just flavor, this is the best price to quality ratio I have yet found. I will now drink more tea than ever before.
Five stars rating considers value. Probably has a bit less body than more expensive teas (i.e. 2x price and above). Our responseThank you for your honest and accurate review of this tea. Also glad to hear you are drinking more tea.
Mellow and Easy03/27/2018 ByJ.W. This tea is so mellow and easy on my stomach. I drink an average of 20 grams of this tea a day.
