The origin bushes for most pu-erh teas usually grow in high-altitude mountains, where the environment is natural and ecologically sound, far away from pollution and other artificial intervention. It has been stored in Lincang City under dry storage conditions, meaning that the cake underwent natural fermentation under an environment of moderate temperature and humidity, and because of the ventilation and fresh air, it did not absorb any moldy or otherwise unpleasant odors: as a result, it will greatly retain its original flavor.. It is not very often that Yunnan Organic Palace Ripened Pu Erh Loose Tea can earn and wear the organic certification. From the sixth steep and on this bitterness weakens, and the first taste up-front is a bittersweet mouthwatering sensation.
This Yunnan Organic Palace Ripened Pu Erh Loose Tea comes from organic high-mountain gardens in Cangyuan County at an altitude of about 1800 meters, right in the core of one of the main pu-erh production areas. The farmers choose the highest grade (palace or superfine grade) raw materials to make this tea, meaning it has a high proportion of tea buds, and both the raw materials and origin bushes have passed the tests for many organic certification agencies.
Because this is a new tea just produced in 2016, the first few steeps may be a little rough and turbid, but the taste will even out and become sharper and clearer after the third steep, and take on a charming red wine color. The aroma of the tea is like sweet rice, and it has a delicate, soft taste, thick in the mouth and with a rich rice-sweet aftertaste. Also because it is relatively young, the taste is a bit light and not as full and complicated as other older pu-erh teas; this is more suitable for people who are newer to pu-erh.
