Taste a curated selection of samples from Kunming Aged Raw Pu'erh Tea Cakes and develop an appreciation for how different storage conditions affect the distinct aroma, flavor and mouthfeel of these amazing teas.
Kunming storage refers to Pu-erh teas that were stored in Kunming, Yunnan. Kunming storage would be considered dry storage especially compared to Guangdong or Banna wet storage (also called traditional storage). Kunming stored Pu-erh teas are typically strong in taste and are closer to their origins having retained much of their original character compared to their wetter-stored counterparts.
Pu-erh tea is made from Yunnan large-leaf varietal of Camellia Sinensis. It is typically processed into compressed cakes, bricks and tuos. Pu-erh is particularly special because it can be aged for decades or longer, always changing and (in most cases) developing more depth and texture. Raw Pu-erh (生茶) is the traditional form of Pu-erh, and is sun-dried and compressed.
