2020 Zodiac Rat Raw Pu-erh Tea
Chinese zodiac culture is an integral part of traditional Chinese culture, rooted in the lunar calendar and astrological beliefs. The Chinese zodiac consists of twelve animal signs, with each animal representing a year in a twelve-year cycle. The twelve animals are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.
In 2008, Chen Shenghao infused zodiac culture into products and launched the zodiac raw and ripe tea series. This is a collection of raw Puerh and ripe Puerh.
In 2019, this collection completed the first round of "Twelve Zodiac Reunion." 2020 is the year of the Rat, Chen Sheng Hao proudly presents the second version of "Ling Shu Zhao Cai" (灵鼠招财), meaning to wish people wisdom and courage in the new year, to seize opportunities, and to achieve success and wealth.
In Chinese culture, the Rat is considered a symbol of intelligence, wit, and adaptability. The year of the Rat is believed to be a time of new beginnings, opportunities, and good fortune, as well as being a time to use one's intelligence and resourcefulness to achieve success.
The Zodiac Raw Puerh is made with large-leaf arbor tree leaves. The pale gold liquor has high fresh aroma, mushroomy creamy with a pleasant bitterness which is followed by quick huigan, thick mouthfeel with strong and long-lasting taste.
