Type: Ripe Pu-erh (fermented)
Grade: 1-3
Production area: Menghai, Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province

Taste characteristics:
During the ten-plus years of tea making, Master Chan has honed his knowledge and experience to produce the highest quality pu-erh teas. Several years ago, he experimented using leaves harvested from arbor trees picked during the spring harvest and fermented them using the local mountain spring water. The finished ripe pu-erh is aged for a few years to improve its overall quality.

The Noble Scholar is made under the above-mentioned high standards as evidenced by its thickness, silkiness, and richness. Master Chan advises those who own this tea to pay attention to its soft but rich mouthfeel, its clarity, and its savory finish.

This tea is beautifully packaged in a red box with a gold-embossed design. The tea is pressed into twelve 8g mini blocks that can be easily broken off from the rest.
