    • Da Ye ZhongTea Varietal

    This workshop blend of old tree material is inspired by the old 1910’s Yang Pin Hao brand, a mix of silvery buds, with young leaves and just enough stem for sweetness. The balanced flavor, texture and aroma are packed with minerality, and mouth-watering texture, accented by florals in the aftertaste for a tea already drinking beyond its years, and ready for further long-term aging.


  • '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.'
