Secret Garden 2016 Spring Old Tree Raw Puer
- Additional Information
- Reviews (0)
Our 2016 Secret Garden raw puer is made from old tree (100+ year) material buried 2.5+ hours deep in a forest, just a little outside of Yiwu. Much of this tea’s uniqueness is owed to its remote location and lack of human interference. The tea produces a good huigan and has a unique fragrance that is easily noticed towards the upper-back part of the mouth. There is a little roughness, but this tea is not too abrasive or bitter, and has great “cha qi”/tea energy.
The garden is located just above a river, with wild banana trees scattered around it and plenty of sunlight. While we don’t detect any noticeable banana flavour in this tea, it certainly has a special and indescribable aroma that sets it apart. As villages and various areas in Yunnan all try to develop a reputation in order to drive the price of their tea up, this is one of those hidden gems that is certainly deserving, but that we hope stays under the radar for a little longer.

Unfortunately all cakes of this tea have sold out for the year. While we acquired as much of the available mao cha as we could this year, it was not enough to meet the demand. We encourage you to check back in 2017 when this tea will undoubtedly make a return.
