2020 Pu'er Sheng Pu, Ancient Tree stone-pressed cake
They strived and suffered, and they became the best-quality leaves.
The year 2020 has been particularly dry, and this shortage of water caused a slowdown in the trees' growth. However, the higher level of liquid sugar concentrated in the leaves provides with an amazing aroma, with a greater complexity.
The freshness of the leaves is overwhelming, and the precious floral bouquet typical of its aftertaste is not long in coming, together with a surprising minerality. After realizing the great aging potential of these leaves, we decided to press them by stone and store them in traditional bamboo Ti, to ensure the best conservation for the years to come.

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.
