Xiang Yu, Ancient Arbor Sheng Puerh, Spring 2018
Like Yu Wei, Xiang Yu is from trees that are 500-1,000 years old in Lincang, Yunnan. Sweet, smooth, full of Cha Qi, relaxing, and much more... With trees this old, how does one differentiate this tea from one from younger trees? The leaves are extremely soft and supple. Even after only 1 month from pressing, the tea is phenomenal, with very little astringency or bitterness. The Qi is very relaxing, even more so than many of our other teas.
