Wang Yanxin is releasing this 2006 offering from her private reserve as part of her limited time “pop-up” guest curation through Verdant. She selected this stand-out shu pu’er for its mineral undertones and sticky rice aromatics. The last decade of aging have brought out cooling pine, subtle fruity undertones and deep complexity. This tea is a perfect example of that clean sweet musty quality that shu pu’er develops over many years. The 100g mini-cake is a perfect size to store some long term and break some open for tasting now.
