Description

Our 20 Year Aged Iceland Pu'erh tea is a fine aged raw (sheng) pu’erh from Mengku Iceland Tea Garden in Shuangjiang County, Yunnan. Iceland tea 冰岛茶 is a famous and highly sought after Yunnan tea with a rich history recorded back during the Ming Dynasty (before 1485). It is grown in a small village that sits isolated 2,000 meters above sea level along the once-bustling and absolutely historical Ancient Tea-Horse Road. 

Picked from large, wild ancient trees (over 100 years old) and is composed of whole, unbroken twisted large leaves. It is said that the leaves of Mengku trees are dark green and soft, with an especially strong fragrance that is very unique. 

When the tea is initially steeped, it has a slightly woodsy aroma, then releases a smoky floral richness. This Aged Iceland pu’erh totally comes alive after the first infusion- it is incredibly smooth, with a slight camphor, incense like note. It has a strong chaqi that is smoked, smooth, fresh and has just a touch of astringency.

If stored properly, this tea will keep well and continue to age beautifully. For the best tea drinking experience, we recommend using a gaiwan and enjoying multiple infusions.

This is how to do it:
1 TSP or 1 BAG
8oz / 200ml
205F / 95°C
1.5 - 3 min

Stunned at how amazing this tea is. I drink the blackest of blacks,and mostly Shu puerh as I like my tea STRONG and dark. Full bodied . Lapsang Souchong is my favorite. But I wanted to try a well aged Sheng as I heard they are better than the shu. Ripe... cooked Puerh. When I saw how light and golden this was... I was worried . But this is smooth, NO bitterness. Buttery, soft, delicate and has a honey apricot flavor. I will be buying it again. LOVE it!

Great! Filled with fruit aroma, clean, smooth, astringent but the bitterness disappears in the mouth after one or two seconds.

I was suprised by this tea. I was expecting a darker, more "aged" taste, this tea is very clean tasting and still very "green". A lovely thick mouthfeel, a little astringencey in the first infusions which fades quickly. The wet leaves smell faintly smokey with a nice hay aroma coming forward. The taste is very sweet and lingers in the whole mouth for a long time. Also this tea has obviously been processed and cared for very well. The leaves are still all in tact and the ratio of buds to leaves is very high making for a nice rounded flavour.
At this price it's a real bargain for age and quality. If you store this tea correctly it will develop nice fruit flavours I believe.

This raw puerh is fragrant and fresh. It is unlike any puerh I have tried- very woods-floral and the taste is incredible- I get many infusions when I prepare it in my gaiwan.
