Made using the huang pian from our 2016 WMD ancient tree raw puer, Alter Ego is arguably one of the best bang-for-your-buck teas out there. This tea retains all of the best qualities of our WMD raw puer: Complexity, depth, sweetness, high fragrance, and of course an immediate cha qi/energy.
Huang pian material consists of the larger and older yellow leaves that are sorted out when processing raw puer. The result of pressing these leaves is often a tea that is somewhat softer and sweeter, not to mention considerably cheaper than its fresh-growth counterpart. While this tea can be considered a reflection of our WMD, it is still a powerful and full-flavoured raw puer in its own right – absolutely not your typical huang pian.
