Our first vintage tea, Zhu Ling Sheng Puerh was crafted 9 years ago in Zhu Ling VIllage, of The Nannuo mountain region in Yunnan. Produced by people of the Hani minority, using the ancient Puerh way of making tea. This Mao Cha has been delicately ageing since 2012 in traditional methods, following nature's course throughout the entire process.
This soft and subtle tea is incredibly mellow and completely grounding an experience for the body and mind and a true treasure to have now or age indefinitely.
