Old Tree Sheng Puerh

These are the second cakes Blue Willow commissioned.  The first-flush, pre-rain tips were plucked in 2018 from strictly old growth, wild trees and have a lot going on.  Best when flash steeped repeatedly, this tea is like a slow drip of energy, and really can steep all day.  The aroma is fresh, bright and incredibly floral.  When sipped, the tea leads with an intense burst that is at once dry and silky, leaving a cooling sensation in your throat. The flavor is verdant with notes of dried apricot, and the fresh astringency is beginning to smooth out and embrace it's earthiness in the years it's been aging.  

These cakes will only get better over time and supplies are limited.
