Certified Organic. Golden Pu-erh has been aged for five years in a dark cave in Yunnan Province. This aging process in a relatively high humidity environment has mellowed the elemental character of the tea when compared to young Pu-erh (aged about 1 year). As with wine, young pu-erh is considered the least valuable whereas pu-erh 5 years or older is more highly prized. Interestingly the taste of pu-erh becomes more mellow with age and perhaps more acceptable to the western palate.
Hint of mustiness with a bit of earthy character sometimes described as old or elemental. Compared to young pu-erh this tea is quite mild. Our aged Pu-erh tea is sure to wow you!
