Other Notes:  Although sheng pu-erh processing is one of the simplest among the Chinese tea types, it is also the most challenging. It takes an experienced and expert tea master to be able to obtain a high quality tea from this simple processing method. Our tea makers pay much attention in the selection of raw material to make this raw pu-erh tea.

This tea is made from the tea leaves plucked from big old trees aged between 100-200 years old. The growing region is rocky and the soil not so fertile. Thus the tea leaves grow slowly.

This tea is rich in minerals and contains less nitrogen, which is important to the quality of the raw pu erh.
