PuErh tea is a world in itself with many Teaheads becoming obsessed with its delightful and wild variety. But, for someone trying to get into PuErh, things can be a bit intimidating and there is a lot of bad PuErh out there to stumble on!
In this flight box we present two high quality PuErh teas (one raw Gushu and one ripe). This is designed for those who want to dip their toes into PuErh tea and understand the different experience that raw and ripe can provide. The teas selected are excellent PuErh's, they are not basic or learner teas in any way. Instead they show off some of the best examples of these two styles of PuErh production.
This PuErh Tea Flight box contains two top quality teas which have been selected for comparative tastings. The box contains a letter written by myself to explain the key differences between the teas and how these affect the sensory experience.
The box contains tasting cards to fill out for your reference. Once you have completed a comparative tasting there will be plenty of tea remaining for individual tea sessions.
This box contains:
Delicate pickings of mineral rich Gushu from estimated 400 year old tea trees in Jing Mai. Deep baked bananas, dried apricots, raw pie dough and zesty limes.
Ripe PuErh made from buds and baby leaves and aged since 2008. Wet caves, fresh paper, vanilla wood, whisky barrels and leather.
