Pu'er is probably one of the trickiest tea types to break into if you have never tried it, especially since the ripe (shu/熟) version that’s full of earthy and musky tones. Yet it is an interesting tea type as it changes continuously as it ages.
This raw (sheng/生) pu’er is grown and produced in Yongde, one of the tea districts in Lincang. The beauty of this tea is that it is grown among ancient forests situated within a National Natural Reserve. Maybe that’s why there’s a hint of pristine forest in the brew. As it’s a young raw pu’er, the tea is vibrant with an astringency that changes into lingering sweetness.
