Confidant Yunnan Arbor Tree Raw Pu-erh Tea Mini Cake 遇知己

4 reviews

This tea was sourced by Victoria Wu on her fall 2017 tea trip to Mengku, one of the major sought after puerh tea producing regions of Yunnan. Like an old friend, it will take no time to treasure this tea. You will taste the freshness like a sweet breeze from the ancient mountains. It is sweet, floral and fruity, smooth with quick Hui Gan, or sweet aftertaste. It has a hint of nutmeg, almond, vanilla, and passion fruit. Each mini cake weighs 8g, the standard preferred size for one pao or one tea session, good for one person or up to four people to enjoy. It can sustain many steepings.
