This pu erh is from the old-growth forests some eight kilometers away from Mr. Tang's organic tea farm. The environment is pristine, the trees are strong and healthy, and the forest is vibrant and abundant. The trees for this pu erh are between 100 to 200 years old. They are wild arbor tea trees, thriving in the forest unattended. The leaves are harvested only once a year; the energy of the trees and roots is concentrated in these spring leaves.
Mr. Tang is a very special tea farmer; he is committed to organic and biodynamic farming methods and all his teas are either organic or from wild arbor trees. He crafts the teas himself with the utmost patience and care, adhering to traditional craftsmanship.
In the mouth, this tea is pure and vibrant with a long sweet aftertaste. It is smooth and elegant, and the feeling and energy of the old growth forest is apparent in every infusion.
