Pu-erh - Pomelo XL - Vintage 1997

Add to Cart


A unique offering, the pu-erh tea is mixed with the inside fruit and is then packed into the rind of the Chinese pomelo fruit. The pomelo is a citrus fruit that resembles a grapefruit. The packed rind is then bound with wire, and slow dried over a hearth. The dried fruits are then allowed to age in carefully controlled environments that help to bring out the complexity of the tea, while mellowing the sharpness of the flavors. The tea is rich and earthy, with bright citrus notes that you can enhance by adding some of the rind to the brew. Approx 1.3-1.6 lb.
