Spring first pick from 500+ years old ancient trees in Da Hei Shan - Big Dark Mountain, Yibang, Yiwu region in Yunnan.
Yibang is home to the royal tribute tea garden for both Ming and Qing Dynasty, specifically for the emperors. Teas selected for the royal court are tribute teas divided into many classes, only the top end teas were made for the emperors personally. Today, we have the opportunity to have a taste of these precious leaves as ordinary beings, indulge if you can!
These precious leaves are full of L-theanine, which makes the taste super sweet and refreshing, is very relaxing as L-theanine has a calming effect. This batch is very aromatic with no little bitterness or astringency. You can't over steep it if you try! Unlike most puerh teas that have harsh penetrating energy, this tea is very soft yet intense, sure keeps you awake and energized in a calming manner. An elegant tea, unlike most puerh! Outstanding quality with refined texture and energy. It is definitely in a league of its own in the puerh genre.
