Chinese Dark Tea
This is a rare, precious raw(uncooked) loose pu-erh tea from Yi Wu ancient tea trees. The raw material has been aged since early 90th.
It has been well taken care of so the dry leaves are shinny and clean. The strong aged aroma is very strong and the classic "Zhang Xiang" is obvious.
This classic, typical "Zhang Xiang" aroma only existed in long years, well-stored old tea. I would like to describe it as fresh, shallow mint smell mixed with herbal fragrance.
The tea liquor is mellow, smooth with strong, sweet after-taste.
