    Some of Wang Yanxin’s favorite cakes in her collection are the ones that evoke sweet aromatic sticky rice, and she often holds onto these pressings for decades at a time so we were surprised when she decided to release this 2007 pressing from Fu Hai. This tea is packed with aromatic sticky rice flavor, vanilla, ginger, and goji berry; a beautiful flavor that has nearly 15 years of slow aging in drier cooler conditions to build complex nuanced aftertastes.


  • '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.'
