An old tea from the Wistaria menu. Thanks to the Gong Fu Cha facebook group folks for letting me bring this home.

I’ve had 60s puerh, last summer with TwoDog and posted on my blog (July 2015). It was old book and leather, incredible. The leaves were very leathery and take boiling water and a long time to wake up. I saved the leaves, rebrewed and dried them back out numerous times over a six month period. So much tea in these leaves, tea took a lot of extraction. The old cellulose is very tight.
Oh, and I drank the rinse.
Where did you buy the 1960s pu er ?
