This Pu'er tea is worth owning and revisiting after storing for years.
After a long period of aging, the appearance of tea leaves is reddish-brown, and the hairy tips and buds turned into tawny. The dry leaves smell woody and slightly earthy smelling.
The aged tea soup is a brownish yellow, and the older one reveals wine red (the older the year, the darker the color)
