An exemplary ripe PuErh which tastes way, way more expensive than its price! It even reminds us of the legendary Sugarnut Reserve 1980's PuErh which was about 10x the price per gram.
A lighter ferment PuErh which has nutty depths but with fruitier and zestier highs than most ripe tea. Lighter ferments mean that the wet-piling process was stopped earlier than with the dark, dank brews like Black Yunnan Tuo. This allows the raw character and energy of the tea to shine through all of that nutty, bready and woodsy goodness.
Since arriving in London, Autumn Light has become our go-to ripe PuErh for daily drinking. It has all of that cleansing and digestif quality of an excellent ripened tea with such a rewarding and engaging candied orange zestiness.
A winning tea at a winning price.
