2019 Pu'er Sheng Pu, Ancient Trees in 200gr. Stone-pressed Cake
In the ancient area of Lunan Mountain, centuries-old tea trees are a sight for sore eyes, and their gently-picked leaves give off a fragrant and sweet scent after the infusion.
The Dai minorities who have inhabited this land for centuries are masters in processing the delicate tea leaves in order to obtain a unique flavor that preserves the vital flow of the ancient tea trees, releasing the taste of time with each infusion.
This tea undergoes a process of natural fermentation. The leaves of the highest grade are steamed and pressed under a heavy stone, resulting in a round cake shape. Its flavor is alive, and it changes according to locations and seasons, always keeping its inebriating scent and the clear brightness of its liquor.

Our tea production
This tea comes from the tea forest we own in Yunnan, in Nannuo and Lunan/Pasha mountain.
We take care of each leg of the production: from the care of the under-forest until package and distribution.
Generations of masters
Our production is entirely supervised by Yan Kunli, that was born and raised on Nannuo mountain, and in 2007 won the Pu'er Shengpu producer competition for the highest Shaqing skills, among all the Hani minority in Yunnan. He is the master in his craft, and we are proud to have him with us.
