老班章 古树生茶 2017年 普洱茶#1075
Lao Ban Zhang Old tree Raw Pu-erh Tea #1075
Pu-Erh is a fully fermented tea that goes through complex processing in which it is shaped into cakes and, like a fine wine, is aged for years to mature the full bloom of its flavors. This process creates a unique aroma and earthly flavor along with many added health benefits. Pu-Erh is believed to aid in reducing cholesterol and fat and is best enjoyed around 15 - 20 minutes after a meal to aid in digestion.
The “old tea trees” are hundreds to thousands of years old which gives a more complex taste and healing benefits. Rich and earthy, this traditional-aged and fermented Pu'er tea offers a smooth, robust cup with notes of chocolate and espresso.
Pu'er (or Pu-erh) tea is also known as "hei cha" or 'dark tea'. For generations, the ethnic groups of southwest Yunnan province have wild-harvested leaves from ancient tea plants, some centuries old and as tall as trees.
This tea can be prepared 'gongfu' style, using a small teapot and preparing multiple infusions from the same leaves. It is best enjoyed if it's rinsed with boiling water prior to steeping. The thick body and dense chestnut flavor of Pu’er leave a smooth-yet-resounding finish on the palate.
