With a stunning burnt-umber liquor, Inner Circle maintains deep, bold complexity through many steepings. One can distinguish aromas and flavors of roasted plum, cacao, wicker, tobacco and chestnut. Comprised primarily of golden buds and heavier grade leaves, which were then fermented for nearly two months after harvest, this first flush ripe puerh is a wonderfully balanced tea.
Bu Lang Mountain is located in Southern Xishuangbanna, Yunnan near the border of Myanmar/ Burma. Bu Lang Mtn. teas are known for their strong, bold flavors and old tea trees (many between 500 and 1000 years old). The soil in the region is rich in purple/ red clay and plentiful rainfall, both evident in the rich teas of the region.
