This 13 years aged Sheng Puer has reached its perfect level or maturity. Not only it has acquired a rich and powerful flavour but it also generously provides the energising potency of tea, known as chi. Keeping that in mind, it’s best to avoid this tea late at night. A portion of leaves will last for many infusions, this is an excellent tea to share with a good friend over a long afternoon. Rinsing of the leaves prior to brewing the tea and starting with short infusions is highly recommended.
