A dry tea leaf has a wood aroma with mineral and marine motifs. After warming up and rinsing, the aroma intensifies and opens with wet wood, seaweed, and dried fruits. A very restrained and deep aroma, multifaceted taste, and strength as some of the best characteristics of old tea.
The taste is sweet, mellow, and deep with wood, and dried fruit notes, and a long-lasting, sweet, and strong aftertaste. With longer brewing, the taste is revealed by mineral and leather tones inherent in traditional Hong Kong storage. Tea gives the dark-amber color of the infusion. Tea warms, relaxes, and immerses in a peaceful state. Soft and deep, this tea is an excellent representative of an inexpensive, but high-quality product that meets all the criteria of an authentic pu'er tea.
