Eärendil is a stunning aged loose-leaf puerh. The collector who has had it for around fifteen or twenty years says it is from the 1970s, but it is impossible to verify dates of teas like this. We have marked it as 1970s/80s based on comparing it with many other such teas over the years. It is well stored, deep and strong. This tea has glorious Qi and a wonderful aged flavor. To continue the metaphor of its name, it is the light to show you the way through the darkness. This tea could be further aged, but it is also wonderful now.
