2015 Xiang Zhu Qing Ancient Tree Raw Pu'erh Tea 400g
This tea hails from Feng Qing, Lincang, Yunnan. This tea was a 2015 harvest from Feng Qing's 500 year-old ancient trees. Feng Qing has abundant ancient puerh trees ranging from 500-1000 years old and is one of the major pu’erh tea growing regions in Yunnan, China. This tea is Chun Ming Company's top line pu-erh tea, named after the prestigious 3200 year-old Mother of Puerh Tree Xiang Zhu Qing, which is located in Jin Xiou village, Xiao Wan town of Feng Qing. This tea strikes me with how smooth and mellow it is. It is mild, buttery, and has a strong Cha Qi. A hint of cantaloupe and a creamy smoothness fills the palate. Also, very little bitterness and astringency even after long steepings.
