ABOUT THIS TEA:
2023 Wild Ancient Tree Sheng Pu’er
50g Mini Cake
Source: Qianjiazhai Wild Tea Trees (200-300 Years)
If you come to Yunnan, you must try the Sheng (or raw) pu’er tea that made this tea region famous.
The leaves are picked by hand from wild trees 200-300 years old inside a protected primordial forest, then withered, heat-treated over a giant wood-fired wok, rolled, and dried before being pressed into cakes for easy storage.
This raw pu’er has a lovely old forest smell, and the tea liquor is clear in the first steeps, and gets gradually more gold as it opens. The taste is fresh and bright, with a small astringency balanced nicely by sweetness and elements of lemon and mint.
True Raw Pu’er fans can consider buying a few extra cakes to age, allowing this sheng tea to truly amaze in years to come.
WHAT IS THE TEA MASTER SERIES?
A Note from Jesse
Hello Tea Friends!
This summer I got to go way into the wilds of Yunnan, to the tea village of Qianjiazhai where Sister Ai's tea farm has tea trees over 1000 years old!
Sister Ai is the god-daughter of my friend Jia Laoshi, a tea expert and author who writes for "Chinese Tea Person" 中华茶人 magazine.
A third-generation tea farmer, Sister Ai picks tea from wild tea trees in the primordial forests of Yunnan that are closed to all traffic except for the locals.
The Tea Master Series boxes is a collaboration between Sister Ai and me - we tried many single-source teas from her mountain and selected these exceptional teas for their quality, taste, purity, and value.
