A perennial favourite with both our customers and ourselves, this tea carries a deep fragrance and floral flavour. There is also some gentle, but pleasant, bitterness and plenty of sweetness in the throat, making this an exceptionally balanced tea.

Disclaimer: If you’re expecting plum or stone fruit notes based on the name, those may be slightly detectable at this stage, but will become increasingly obvious as the years go on. 5 or more years of patient storage will be rewarded.

The material for this tea comes from ~40yr “fangyang” (放养/left to grow) trees that are not treated with pesticides, fertilizer or any other intervention outside of picking. This is hands down our preferred type of material as it often lends a richer flavour and texture, but at a more affordable level than gushu or old trees.

Picking period: Pre-April 6

    I’ve been a fan of the Plum Beauty series in all of its forms over the past few years. This year’s is by far the most intensely aromatic with strong honeysuckle-like floral notes! Really good. There’s great pungent flavor, with the aroma resonating forever, and the brew has a nice, medium body with a pleasant bitterness and no astringency.
    Great continuation of a great series!

    This tea has a whole lot going for it. The incredible fragrance would make it accessible to someone who isn’t very experienced with puerh, but there is just enough bitterness to keep a veteran puerh enthusiast interested. On top of that, the tea really has a nice energy to it. It isn’t face-melting but it’s definitely making writing this review take much longer than it should. I got about 1.5 liters of steepings out of 6 grams in a 150ml vessel. That’s really good as I tend to oversteep things. This tea is an excellent value in my opinion. I wish I would have tried the previous years productions but I will certainly stock this one.
