“Yun Cha” is a collaboration between the Yunnan Agricultural Science Tea Research Institute and the Xishuangbanna Pu’er Tea Institute. Wang Yanxin has built a relationship with the people behind Yun Cha for over a decade, following their work sharing truly evocative and consistently outstanding sheng and shu pu’er. This cake exemplifies the sought after nuomixiang or sticky rice profile while still developing a cooling deep foresty undertone, the result of over thirteen years of aging. Don’t miss the chance to try this truly mature shu pu’er.
'Most pu’er does become more complex over time. Astringency mellows out, darker and richer flavors come through. Textural complexities become more pronounced. Starting with an intriguing young pu’er of high quality with lots of textures and flavors at play will increase your chances of graceful aging.'
