2013 Nan Nuo Old Tree Maocha

Exclusive to Canton Tea, made from the leaves of 600 year old trees.
Puerh maocha (literally 'coarse tea') is rarely encountered outside Yunnan. It is the raw material that is rolled, baked and sun-dried before being pressed into Puerh cakes. Yunnan Puerh farmers drink it all day, every day, brewed hot and strong. We have the only supply of this tea in the world. Bought on our visit there in the spring, it is made from wild 600 year old trees by tea farmer Su Er, high up on his farm on Nan Nuo Mountain.

Completely exclusive to Canton Tea Co, bought on our trip there in the spring, this is an authentic taste of Yunnan. More pictures and info on the Canton Tea Club blog.

Essence of young puerh tea

Review by ADP3355

/ 5

It has to be said that this seems expensive at first, but given the price that some young 'single village' raw puerh cakes can reach nowdays and that you only need buy 25g (and you get a 'free' caddie), not excessively so. Indeed, considering that this is practically a 'single tree' tea it seems almost cheap by comparison! What is important is that it comprises entirely old natural tree material, and this shows in the satisfying quality and character of the brew. To my taste it exemplifies the virtues of a realy good young puerh: It comprises beautiful large whole leaf, skillfully processed; has a sweet taste with green, fruity notes and aromas of hay, turning perfumed and orchid-like at the bottom of the cup; it has a touch of 'good' bitterness at the back of the tongue and a rich coating 'mouthfeel', but is not astringent or sour; is also has a strong and lasting minty aftertaste or 'huigan' and is equally good over many infusions. Many puerhs need to be aged and some can be diffiult and even unpleasant when young, but this is delicious as it is. IMHO I think it exemplifies the essence of young puerh tea. Tasting it should be on the 'to do' list for anyone who has acquired a penchant for young puerh, as a baseline against which to assess other material. .
