Description

Then a two-year pile fermentation process was carried out before they were further processed into cake teas in May, 2008. In the following seven years, those cake teas have been stored in the special warehouses for fermentation purpose until this year. So, when brewing this tea the aged scent is prominent and the liquor is typically bright red and clear. The liquid aroma of this tea is intriguing and smells a little bit like red dates while tastes very mild and balanced without bitterness. On the whole, this product is ideal for pu-erh tea beginners and daily consumption.
