2021 Huazhuliangzi Pu'er Shupu
This shupu reflects its character: it is soft and creamy, like an almond tart; bitterness and astringency are limited: its mouthfeel is full and friendly like a mousse, or a ripe sugar-apple, a gentle base from where hints of cinnamon and fresh mountain herbs arise.
We thought this tea a perfect companion for delicate sweets and even a tropical-fruit mousse; stored in Banna until late 2022, it is ready to be drunk and it promises a further maturation for the years to come, following the evolution of your own life.
Its mineral aftertaste immediately connects it with the pu'er shengpu from the same mountain and harvest: explore Huazhuliangzi heights and flavours adding two or more of its teas to your cart to get a 10% discount at the checkout.
