Continue Shopping or Checkout

Plucked from wild trees growing high on Ai Lao Mountain, this loose leaf shou cha is perfect as an introduction to puerh or as a refreshing breather for the afficionado.  It has been sorted to include only the tips and has an effect that is clarifying and uplifting. 

The first steep yields a bright and vivid infusion, with each consecutive cup reaching deeper notes of the leaf.  The mineral content of the soil is prevalent in the cup with bright, energizing notes of copper, and grounding undertones of cocoa and damp earth.  The liquor has a silky mouthfeel and leaves a lasting coolness in the throat, unusual for a tea of this style. 

Origin: Yunnan, China
Harvest: 2018
