There is a saying which says that raw pu-erh tea needs to be stored over 10 years to get best taste. Let’s put aside the discussion about this saying. As for this tea, they have been stored in the “干仓” (pinyin: gancang) for 10 years (干仓 refers to those warehouses where its internal environment is kept dry all the year round for the purpose of ageing pu-erh) and so their tastes and aromas have been greatly enhanced.

The fresh herbaceous plants aromas of the newly harvest tea are turned into faint wood scent after 10-year storage in the 干仓. Much like its dry scent, the taste of this tea is delightfully mild, take a sip of it you will get the thirst-quenching feeling underneath your tongue immediately with long-lasting fragrance.
