Gushu Shu Pu'er

Great Harmony Bulang 2014

For lovers of the smoothest Shu.

Known for its boldness, the typical Bulang bitterness has been eroded completely away in this Shu Pu'er, leaving behind a gentle, smooth flavour: only the aromatic intensity of Bourbon vanilla or cold-brewed coffee lands on the back of the tongue, while the savouriness of a mild shoyu and a hint of liquorice sweetness remain on the palate. The venerable Gushu leaves and their several-year ageing ultimately come through in a restrained, but indeed harmonious, composition. A tea that leaves one feeling centred.
