From Tealyra

This flavorful and ripe Chinese tea was harvested from semi wild Arbor trees in Menghai in 1991, and dry stored in China’s state owned tea factory in Kunming under specialized care.
Ripened to perfection, this bio-dynamically farmed pure organic tea was picked from ancient wild arbor tea trees using traditional methods to ensure a full bodied, complex taste with absolutely no bitterness.

Full flavored and aged to perfection, this over twenty year vintage tea really is something special. Hand plucked before pan firing and sun drying, our Rare Wild Arbor Ripe Pu- Erh has undergone highly specialized wo- dui aging in order to provide a perfectly clear tea soup in a deep burgundy color with a rich, high aroma and fragrant, robust strength.

This 1990’s Rare Wild Arbor Ripe Pu- Erh can be brewed up to seven times, with the brewing time extended each time after the first usage. Simply put 3- 5 grams of tea into a warm teapot, and add freshly boiled water at a ratio of around 1:50 parts. Brew for just a few seconds, before emptying out the water and steeping again for a further ten seconds before pouring.

Tea Varietal: Semi-wild Arbor Tea Trees
Farming Methods: Biodynamic Organic Farming
Production Methods: Plucking—pan firing-rolling-drying under the sun-packing-wo-dui-aging.
Vintage: 20 years

Great tea! I bought this from Tealux via Amazon. When I opened the bag the smell was a little… Off putting to say the least! It smells like a leaf pile and trees, like the smell when you walk up to an Oak tree and smell it, not cut wood but living tree wood. I brewed this in a Yixing clay pot after rinsing once. At first the flavour surprised me, still pretty leaf pile, grassy, but smooth! A nice creamy aftertaste and not astringent at all. I infused one more time, and this time the flavours were much more subdued but the aftertaste was still quite astringent. Would definitely reccomend you to try!

dexter sent this to me and uh it was what i managed to sip on most of the afternoon. this was a really tasty one….and something likely to end up on my list again when i order from tealux again. Dexter keeps finding little happy spots with them that i like. This might be one for you to try out cavo!

In general I’ve been happy with Tealux’s straight teas (flavors are hit and miss for me). Happy that you liked this one. :))

I was drinking this at work yesterday. This is really good – unusual, for me anyway.
I’m not even sure how to describe it. WOW smooth is where I want to start. Mellow, gentle, barely pu’erh. It’s just a touch earthy – and I don’t know what the rest of the flavor is, but I like it. It’s not really a black, it’s barely pu’erh, but it still has lots of flavor – just different from anything else I’ve tried.
If I ever get my cupboard under control, I would consider getting more of this so that I can play with it some more.
