    Recommends this tea

This is a cheeky little raw PuErh that crossed our path whilst we were searching for Autumn PuErh. We had stopped looking for Spring 2017 tea but after sampling this we could not resist adding it to our collection.

Pudding Announcer is made from old tea trees growing in Xigui area of Yunnan - one of our favourite places for gloriously easy drinking PuErh. Technically there is no official tree age which determines when we can call something 'Gushu' but I tend to set the minimum age to be 200 years. Therefore, I would not consider this Gushu tea but it is certainly made from old trees.

The price point on this tea makes this a fabulous, high grade tea to introduce yourself or others to world of raw PuErh. The taste is similarly suited to anyone dipping their toes into this type of tea with very little bitterness and a mouth full of cream, jasmine and strawberries.
