• An interesting tea that becomes milder with age
• A mellow taste with an "old" character
The leaves for this tea come from the Yunnan Dayeh variety of tea tree - which is purported to be closely related to the original tea tree of pre-glacial times. It is certain that this pu-erh is rather unusual and has properties many other teas do not share.

The method of production is: The tea leaves are picked, rolled, withered in the hot sun, after which they are steamed and pressed into cakes. (This pu-erh is broken up out of the cakes to make it easier to deal with). The steaming process generates some moisture and when compressed (without drying) into the cakes, in the course of time the tea takes on a musty and earthy character. Pu-erh that gets somewhat moldy before it naturally dries is considered the best. Pu-erh is then stored for years. As with wine, young pu-erh is considered the least valuable whereas pu-erh 5 years or older is more highly prized. Interestingly the taste of pu-erh becomes more mellow with age and perhaps more acceptable to the western palate.

The taste has been described as mellow, however those not accustomed to it might not enjoy the "old" character. For others though, this flavor will add to its aura of wonder. Some consumers have recommended that pu-erh be blended with chrysanthemum florets to make the taste more acceptable. In fact this blend can be ordered in tea houses in southern China and Hong Kong.

  Great green tea

I have been buying this green tea from zooscape for 2 years now. This is a great tea, and I cannot bear to be without it. I am sad when my bag runs out, so I now buy them 2 or 3 at a time.

This is one of the best-tasting green teas I have ever tried. I just placed an order for 3 more bags so I don't run out again!
