Aged 20 Years Vintage Pu'erh

Aged 20 Years Vintage Pu'erh

In stock: 12

Origin: China


Our ripe vintage pu'erh is a limited early spring tea from Yunnan province in southwest China. Aged for twenty years, our vintage pu'erh has gone through extensive oxidation- which provides a smooth, thick tea liquor. These tea leaves contain rich mineral content and fermentation over such a long time reduces the heady "funk" that younger ripe pu'erhs commonly have and produces a bold, rich earthy flavor, that has a slightly sweet taste and a reddish brown liquor. This fine vintage pu'erh tea is now at a very drinkable state.

Mostly stems and only bits of leaf. Can't complain for the price though. It is 20 years aged I believe and has a stout effect upon drinking.

One of the better pu-erh teas on the market at an affordable price. Has a rich, full flavor and a good, earthy tone without being overpowering. Most other pu-erh teas I've tried at this price point that have been aged as long have a slight bitterness that is difficult to overlook. This one is smooth, even when accidentally over-steeping. The repeated steeps reveal a deeper, more complex flavor for the second third and sometimes the fourth cup, then nicely mellow for a few times thereafter. This has become my staple pu-erh tea and is a good choice for an introduction to what pu-erh is all about for the novice as well as a solid, quality choice for the price-aware pu-erh drinker.

My first pu'erh and I love this stuff. Drink it almost every evening after dinner, re steeps a few times over the course of the evening.

Good tea. Not as deep tasting as I would have liked it to be for a 20 years old tea, but very drinkable. Pu’erh is good any time of day, but I usually have mine in the late afternoon or early evening.

This is an assertive leaf that reminds me of a moldering forest floor... in the best way possible. It blends well with dried rose petals, Ceylon cinnamon, vanilla bean and clove to make a fascinating chai. This is one of my favourite teas from tealyra. Five stars all 'round.

This is a delightful, rich, full bodied tea. If you are trying to reduce your coffee, try this.
