From Seven Cups

Despite the name this is not a sheng (raw/green) puer. It is a shu puer. The name means that the fragrance from natural aging. This tea comes from Xishuangbana in the area around old Puer City. The growing area is over 2000 meters above sea level; the tea bushes are from 60 to 100 years old. The leaves are larger than those in Palace Puer, though it still has a lot of golden buds. The tea color is a very clear brownish red color. The flavor is rich, with a long lingering finish. Great care was used in the fermentation process and is evidenced by the tenderness of the leaf after brewing- over fermentation will make the tea dark and the leaves tough.

I’m new to puers, and I only have a sample of this, but it’s quite pleasant and lasts multiple infusions.
