2010 Mengku Iceland Ancient Tree Raw Puerh (Spring)

 

Old Tree pu-erh tea, also commonly called Lao Shu pu-erh, is made using tea leaves from Mengku large-leaf tea trees between 300 and 800 years old. The ‘old tree’ in the name refers to the wild ancient trees left to grow in natural forests, semi-cultivated old trees in wild areas, or artificially-cultivated trees that have been maintained for at least a century.


Pu-erh tea made from old tree leaves is generally higher in quality than younger teas. Old tea trees are naturally grown in non-polluted environments, resulting in higher nutritional value of the leaves, and it also endures better through more infusions.


It does not have the strong, bitter taste of other new raw pu-erh teas, and its liquid is sweet and tender with a honey and floral aroma. It enters with smooth and soft taste, accompanied by slightly bitter at first only to give way to its sweeter taste. After drinking, you’ll get a pleasant lingering sensation of sweetness on your palate with no bitterness at all. Even, its aroma lingers on afterwards when the tea cup is empty.
