This Pu-Erh is grown in the Chinese province of Yunnan. Young leaves and buds from old trees are hand harvested and carefully selected in early months of the year between February and March in order to capture the most tender part of Pu-Erh. The appearance is unique and distinct with golden yellow aged buds as a result of the traditional fermentation process in humid conditions. In the history of Pu-Erh, all Royal Pu-Erhs were used as offering for Chinese Royals for hundreds of years. Used for diplomatic gifting, they are sometimes referred to as the 'Treasure Pu-Erh' or 'Tribute Tea'. This vintage cup is deep red with a distinctive, earthy taste and an energy that reflects ancient wisdom and countless stories.
