"Da Hu Sai" Mao Cha
A Da Xue Shan varietal, this raw Pu-erh is harvested from old trees in Yongde County and processed at a factory in the Mengku township. The tea trees grow at an elevation of almost 2,000 meters. The processing of the leaf has been skillfully done, creating a Pu-erh with depth of taste and lingering sweet and floral flavors. This tea is delicious and refreshing, perfect for mid-day. It cups a light umber and will brew numerous times using short infusions. Lot # JV-1

The Silk Road Teas Story
Mao Cha Pu-erh harvested from old trees at elevations of approx. 2100 meters, Yongde County.
Taste is delicious!
Floral, with a kick
Posted by Daniel Costigan on 8th Jan 2015
This is a really nice loose pu-erh. Very nice floral quality, but still has a tanginess to it I can't quite identify. The leaves unfurl beautifully, and are fun to watch as the tea steeps. Definitely wise to use shorter infusions, and I usually use water that is around 195 degrees. Strong flavors, but not overpowering at all. Sweet and floral cup that, when brewed properly, can yield more than 5 steepings.
