2017 Bada Young Tree Ripe Pu'er

$6.50$40.00

An instant crowd favorite, we zeroed in on this ripe tea immediately due to its friendliness to both the palate as well as the wallet.  Even though it's affordable, it's no slouch when it comes to quality — this material comes from natural 生态 shēngtài gardens planted in the 1980s managed by Dá É’s friend Nán Hé in the Bada Mountain village 曼迈 Mànmài near the Myanmar border.  Manmai hosts just over 100 Bulang ethnicity families.

A long session of rich, creamy, cocoa puff + vanilla flavors suspended by a backbone of cooling stone + iron mineral textures awaits.
