A few years ago we received a very small and memorable batch of this tea. Sneakily we tucked some away to carefully age for a later date! All lovers of Pu Er Sheng will appreciate this limited vintage, in its prime quality phase (more than 25 years). Certainly among the top Sheng we have in our catalogue at present.
Produced in Mucha near the capital of Taiwan, this tea has typically been cooked 60 hours before being aged for over 20 years. Its producer, Mr. Gao, who also prepares this tea in his harvest of the year, is highly skilled in these two transformation processes and his attention to detail gives an exceptional vintage.

The Bulang Mountains of Yunnan have become a highly sought after terroir, so we are lucky to offer us these compressed 357g cakes.

From Youle Mountain, one of the famous 6 of Xishuangbanna, in the Chinese province of Yunnan, this Pu Er has been conditioned in large baskets, as is the tradition for teas of the Liu Bao style. Although the tea leaves keep minimal traces of this process (light stacking), we present it in loose leaf.
