Over 100 years old tea tree leaves (gu shu 古樹) grow at an altitude of 1900m. The tea is processed in a traditional method and hand-rolled into dragon ball shape.
A young and delicate tea, with complexity and unique profile fitting the area of western Yunnan, on the border with Myanmar. A clear and light drink with delicate bitterness and rare saltiness.
Recommended for drinking in the first part of the day, from spring to autumn.
Young and promising tea that will be improved (see storage instructions), but due to its rare qualities it can also be enjoyed in its youth.
