The southern tribes of Yunnan have long exchanged Seven Sons Bingcha to symbolize reunions and marriages at which many sons are present. Post-fermented and processed by a local indigenous Xishuangbanna 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. 

A very clean bing-cha (cake) Pu-erh. Light, clean, crisp, sweet. Great for someone looking for a Pu-erh they won’t ever get tired of and can drink every single day.
