2023 Pu'er Shengpu, Tea Forest Stone-pressed cake
Harvest 2023 is possibly one of our most fragrant productions so far, and this stone-pressed cake from our wild forest in Nannuo mountain is the best example of the complex ecosystem of our land, where tea trees live together with fruit trees, always shaded by their canopy.
The drier season translates into a great sweetness, made even more special by the difficult handling of a raw material with lower moisture content.
After traveling overseas and resting for a few days, these young leaves developed a surprising maturity of flavors, that reveals the youth of the harvest only in the aftertaste, when a fresh hue of buds fills the palate.
This cake has a surprising qi, unexpected in young wild forest tea leaves, and promises a great evolution of flavors and the sweetest maturity in future years.

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.
