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 ByPatrick 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. :)
A very good blend01/29/2022 ByScott Bond This Denong ripe blend is a very nice combination of 3 years of wild puerh. The tea is smooth, rich and feels very good in the body. This is a very affordable and clean puerh for daily consumption. Thank you Linda for offering this tea through Bana! Our responseThank you, Scott, for the nice review. It is particularly high praise coming from you.
Love the Denong Teas01/18/2023 ByCarolyn W You really cannot go wrong with a Denong Wild brick. Especially one that has aged a bit. These are always delicious and worth saving for a special occasion. One of my favorites from Bana.
