Indigenous tribal peoples of Yunnan forage these leaves from 300-year-old trees in the unadulterated forests of Lao Man Er of Bulang Mountain in Menghai. We have specially commissioned this extraordinary tea, and a portion of the Spring 2015 harvest remains in China to continue aging.
A powerful experience to appreciate now, we encourage you to allow this tea to rest even further and enjoy its transformation. This young sheng pu-erh is especially strong at this age. We find this cake to be a supreme candidate for long term aging, as it's powerful front and lasting mouthfeel will yield to increasing complexity, sweetness, and smoothness over the coming years. As rare collector's items, pu-erh destined for long term aging will appreciate in value over time.
