These beautifully sun-dried Ruby 18 cultivar leaves have been processed in a hybrid GABA and Sheng Puer processing style to create a flavor profile that we have never had in any other tea we have had on the site.
In the opening, this Puer Sheng GAPU Grade P tea has a fruity note of medium sweetness: hints of blackberries and red fruits, slightly astringent, then evolve into sweeter notes of candied fruit and candied figs.
Only later is there a slight woody note on the back of the tongue, not at all intrusive and also evolving.
The finish returns bittersweet, with hints of chestnut honey and a good fruity persistence.
These fragrant Pu erh Sheng GAPU Grade R tea leaves, from the Ruby 18 cultivar, have a special processing, combining GABA techniques with Pu erh sheng production techniques to create a taste we rarely encounter in tea. In fact, this tea offers a little sensory journey: the initially more sour taste reminiscent of red fruits slowly transforms into sweet notes on the palate, with a liveliness typical of puer tea.
Pressed into a cake for aging, this tea is fascinating meld of Chinese, Taiwanese and Japanese styles of tea making.
Tea with strong warming, which is coupled with relaxation.
