Wang Yanxin has just released this rich shu pu’er after a generous four years of aging to deepen its complexity. When brewed, this tea has a striking aroma of sweet sticky rice. This aroma comes from the unique blend of Nuomixiang or Semnostachya menglaensis leaf with Wan Yuan workshop’s shu pu’er. As the Yunnan native Nuomixiang herb ages with the pu’er, they come together for a rich, sweet and lingering tea.
'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.'
