This old tree young sheng pu’er is unexpectedly smooth with just the right amount of ‘rawness’. The golden yellow liquor is cloudy with nutrition, common in quality younger sheng and the flavor delivers exactly what I like in a sheng pu’er, a touch of barnyard goodness and a delicate astringency that keeps the mouthfeel fresh and clean. Sheng pu’er is known for it’s ability to aid with digestion making this a fantastic tea to enjoy after a heavy meal. This tea can be enjoyed immediately or it could be packed away for a few dozen years if you can wait that long!
