    Again, like a farm after a rain. A roasted coffee/cigar taste going over the tongue but a smooth finish

There are many Tuo PuErh tea on the market, in fact, the world is flooded with the stuff. So many (we would say 9 out of 10) are poorly made and have that distinctive fishy or dried squid aroma indicating mass production, poor ripening, no ageing or excessively wet storage. This smell demonstrates that the wrong kinds of moulds have developed and the stronger the smell the poorer the quality.

We have searched far and wide for Tuo tea and this one is spectacular. We previously offered a big client favourite from 1998 and when we began running low we became a bit anxious that we could not find a match. However, I think we may have found one which is even more delicious! Produced in 1996 and aged for over 20 years in perfect dry storage in Yunnan to make a crazily silky tea with lots of matured, dry fruit and antique wood aromas with a fudge creaminess that is usually reserved for the top level ripe cakes. I am so happy that we have found such quality in a tuo shape and at a really affordable price.
