Other Notes:  This is a great sheng pu-erh tea. It is made with the tea leaves from old trees aged 300-500 years and plucked from the earliest flush germinated in spring. The growing area is rich in minerals and low in nitrogen. The high altitude of over 2000 m ensures there is enough cloud cover, fog and mist, with frequent temperature changes for the tea leaves to develop a high degree of unique character. The tea trees in this region produce some of the most outstanding quality of old tree pu-erh tea in Yunnan.
