Club selection of April 2016 - Nan Nuo Teas are great reference point for a Puerh, resting on the more neutral and ‘soft’ flavor end of the big leaf variety. It is a great tea to increase infusion times, as it is generally mild and lacks some of the bite of more astringent Puerhs. This is due to both the soil and the processing which is done in the village of Zhu Ling. The tea gardens from where this tea is harvested are actually higher up the mountain from where the village is located. Families live in the village and during harvest season make the journey up higher into the fields which have rested in the family circle for generations.

Tasting Notes - Light with great vegetal note that doesn’t overwhelm (unless one likes a longer infusion to add some power), this Nan Nuo comes from the orange earth-clay zones of the mountain. This region’s bushes and trees are fast being ‘rented’ or bought up by larger companies for its great raw materials. A great tea for experimentation with amounts of leaves, and infusion times, this Nan Nuo is probably a tea best fresh (within the coming 2 years) rather than one for the aging cabinet.
