Raw Puer: Jinggu Mtn. 100 - 400yr 2008 - 200g Cake - LIMITED!!
The tea's leaves are selected from tea trees that are between 100 to 400 years old. The production of the tea cakes were personally supervised by tea Master Vesper Chan. The dried leaves emit a nice aroma and the yellow-orange tea liquor presents a dried apricot flavor unique to teas from Jinggu Mountain. Followers of this tea enjoy the "hui gan (returning bitter sweet)" that coats the mouth and throat and its balanced and comfortable "Qi." Teas of this high quality are becoming rare finds.
