2021 Autumn Harvest Ancient Trees Shengpu, Stone-pressed cake
The autumn harvest starts in September, after our Spring tea has reached your cups, and surprised your palate. The delicate tea leaves are harvested by hand, and after sun-drying they get pretty hues of dark green, that will become redder and redder as time passes by.
In the first brews, the initial flowery aroma is soon reached up by a persistent mellowness of unripe fruits, fresh and delicate. A great complexity later bursts in the aftertaste, giving off a hint of acacia honey, that will bloom with the ageing process. The thick and smooth liquor continues releasing the beauty of the autumn colors brew after brew, going from a light golden color to warm amber hues, as the long brownish leaves unfurl in the teapot.

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.
