Taste characteristics:
If you are a fan of the Denong Wild Ripe Pu-erh, you will be delighted with this 2013 edition. Combining the 2009, 2010 and 2013 Denong Wild dry leaves, this tea is amazingly rich, complex and smooth. Full-bodied, it offers a syrupy finish in the throat. Like the Denong Wild Ripe Pu-erh of previous years, this tea is made from ancient arbor trees planted in the forest centuries ago in the mountainous areas of Yunnan. It is natural and chemical free. Given the fact that these tea trees have thrived with other nearby forest plants and the roots of these plants have intertwined. The result is a wild tea with unique and complex flavors.

A little short. 05/21/2020
By Patrick Miller
After finishing my Denong Wild 2009 Ripe pu-erh brick I cast about for a suitable replacement. I was VERY HOPEFUL that the 2013 Wild Denong Ripe Pu-Erh tea would be as good—based on the fact that it was a combination of some already proven quality tea vintages. Alas, it came up short of my expectations.it is, however, a satisfying experience. Once you have tasted the best, you are spoiled for all the rest!
Our responseI agree. The 2009 edition was the best. I kept 30 bricks for my enjoyment in the coming years. :)
