2020 Clouds Shu Cooked Puer
Banna, Yunnan, China
Highly Commended at The Leafies 2022 by the UK Tea Academy
An artisan, whole-leaf puer tea from Flavours of Tea made from biodynamically grown leaves. The low bud content in the compressed brick gives it a wonderfully light and refreshing mouthfeel, which contrasts beautifully to the deep, complex flavour of sweet, sticky rice. A delicious, flavourful puer which will astonish those who are less experienced with fermented teas and delight anyone more familiar with this rarefied category, who is looking for something special.
Ingredients: Puer tea (Camellia sinensis)

A light and refreshing puer that will develop deeper, more complex flavour notes as it ages. Made with leaves from a range of years, altitudes and processing types. The mountain tea trees grow with little to no manual interventions to enhance the exceptional flavour in every leaf. Look for notes of sweet, sticky rice.

The leaves are harvested from tea trees growing in the verdant, luscious rainforests of Yunnan, at a high mountain altitude of 1400m. The blazing sunshine, abundant rainfall, diverse species and rich soils create a truly sensational terroir.
