Country Road - Small Leaf Ripe Puerh 2017- 2 oz
The dark cherry liquor carries a thick, musky brew with flavors of dark bittersweet chocolate, rosebuds and roasted honey. The body of the tea is silky and supple with a rousing Qi. This beautiful small leaf ripe Puerh was harvested in the Spring 2017 with the intention of leaving it as a mao cha (looseleaf), and wet piled during the summer. The tea was organically cultivated from assamica bushes at an altitude around 1300 meters near Puer City. Country Road gained its name because the tea evokes a sense of country rusticity and refinement. It has an enlivening Qi, just as the image of a road elicits a sense of movement, yet without a timeline or sense of urgency. This is a slow sippin' tea for days when you have time for a long session.
