2013 Golden Buds Ripe Pu-erh Brick

Yunnan is the original home of aged tea and the techniques have been developing for hundreds or thousands of years.

Bordering Laos, Vietnam and Burma, the pressed pu-erh tea was used as currency for traders in the early 17th century. The tea is known in the region as a weight loss and digestive aid and has become a favourite of loose leaf tea lovers around the world for its complex flavour and distinctive form. 

The Golden Buds are a supreme quality young sweet bud, known for their delicate, sweet flavour. The ageing of the tea brick develops a deep, chocolatey and smooth flavour. This is a great entry tea for Whiskey or Wine connoisseurs who appreciate the development of flavour with age.
