- Elevation: Variable, 1600 Meters
- Varietal: Pu-erh large leaf
- Oxidation: 100% + Fermented
- Production: Shu fermentation
This pu-erh is made with 100+ year old Ancient Tree leaf which grows deep in the forest away from pollutants. The ancient tall tree receives diffuse and less directed sun which helps maintain needed nutrients and minerals.
Post-fermented and processed by a Xishuangbanna Menghai factory, the leaves are sun-dried, steamed and hand-pressed into stone molds containing their signature divot. Dried cakes are fermented and aged in controlled humidity for one year. The finished discs are stacked seven-high in wrappers as has been the tradition for over 2000 years. The result is an earthy and smooth tea.

02/21 Tasting Notes:
This tea has a mellow, antique, woodsy aroma with hints of orange peel. There is a dry sweetness in the body, like lightly cooked bamboo shoots. The later steeps give way to mild, earthy flavors. The finish is clean, and has a lingering, slightly fruity sweetness.
