Angel's Comment:

This ripened Pu-erh tea is a good choice to be mixed with milk. The modulated milk tea tastes mellow and smooth, after tasting, you will want more.

The ripened Pu-erh loose tea can be divided into Palace grade, superfine grade, grade 1, grade 2 to grade 10 based on the quality, the higher the level, the tender the tea is. Teavivre’s this tea belongs to the grade 3 of Pu-erh loose tea, which mainly choose one bud with two to three leaves as the raw material and fermented by traditional technology. Its tea liquid with jujube aroma tastes sweet, smooth and soft. When drinking, you can obviously feel the consistency of tea liquid and after drinking, you can smell the obvious aroma when sniffing the wall of tea cup. If you have the habit of drinking Pu-er tea in the afternoon, you can also be supplemented by some refreshments.

 

PS: Pu-erh tea is famous for its sweet aftertaste, that's to say, after the tea goes into the throat, the sweet taste still lingers in the mouth. The interplay of unique milk aroma and tea flavor makes us memorable. About how to make ripened Pu-erh milk tea, please see: Pu-erh and Milk, a Magic Journey of Taste.
