Tasting a Yiwu Gushu PuErh

The Queen of Sheng PuErh regions finally arrives at Mei Leaf with a Zesty Tea


I have been searching for a good Yiwu for many years but they always seem to miss out on selection. Usually, this is because the high price of Gushu Yiwu is not justified with the taste, other times it is because we felt that there was too much risk of fakery. So to get this Yiwu we had to go more official and use our connections in the Gushu PuErh Institute to source us this special tea.

Watch as we taste a tea which is in some ways a totally typical Yiwu and in others a completely unique character.
