Ancient tea tree, at least 150 years old (gu shu 古樹) that grow in altitude of 2600m high. The tea is processed in a traditional way and simply called "raw tea" (sheng cha 生茶) by the locals.
Young tea leaves with spectacular green hues and a wide range of flavors. Short infusions will yield a sour and herbal drink, while longer infusions have a bitter taste in a medium body. A clear drink with a yellowish tint.
A refreshing summer tea that is recommended for drinking in the first part of the day, from spring to autumn.
A young and promising product that will improve over time (see storage instructions), but due to its quality and unique character it can also be enjoyed in its youth.
Pu'er needle as a gift with every tea cake purchase.
