A vibrant Sheng Pu that elegantly collects the refined flavour spectrum of ancient trees and the iconic bitterness of Laobanzhang terroir smoothened by the climate of the 2024 season. The freshness of this tea gives light to the most floral and fruity shades of this precious terroir, leaving a soft botanic feeling on the palate that makes the harvest 2024 unique for its gentleness. A persistent fragrance and a growing aftertaste guide us as we proceed brew after brew, where we meet the typical bitterness that is written in the genes of the centuries-old tea trees that grow on Laobanzhang soil, and we feel a Qi powerful like no others.

Laobanzhang village is the most renowned among Pu'er tea lovers.
It is now inhabited by the Hani people, who migrated from Honghe and Pasha, rich in sweet tea cultivars. The land they grew their tea seeds on was originally protected by Bulang minority, who came from Laoman'e, bringing with them the bitter tea cultivars from their place of origin.
The different cultivars slowly merged with each other over the centuries, and finally gave life to one of the highest quality teas, crowned as King of Pu'er.
