2001 Gu Pu'er "Yin Hao Tuo" Raw Pu-erh Tea
Lovely Simao Aged Pu-erh Tea Tuo Cha from Gu Pu'er Tea Factory. First flush of Spring 2001 material was graded and blended to make this "Yin Hao / Silver-Haired" tippy tuo cha. This is the "Gold Ribbon Grade" which is the highest grade blend for the Yin Hao tuo. Each tuo cha has a yellow ribbon embedded into it.
Tight compression has protected it over the years allowing for a gradual aging in a tropical environment. Very clean, and a good example of "dry" wet storage! The brewed tea is thick and sweet with a floral nectar like pungency and fresh mushroom earthiness to it. Very thick and viscous in the mouth. Can be infused many rounds.
Truly a pleasure to drink this aged pu-erh. Affordable price for something 15 years of age!
50 grams per tuo, 5 tuo per bag.
