The sweet, intense vanilla note of this tea makes way for delicate notes of wood and spices. An ideal introduction to Pu Erh.

Yunnan is home to the forests where the first tea bushes grew, bordering Laos and Myanmar.
Situated at an altitude of 1,300 metres on Da Chao mountain, Mr Gui’s farm is a plantation of some 370 acres that specialises in producing all types of Pu Erh.

There are five stages in the manufacture of these cooked Pu Erh teas:

  • After harvesting, the leaves are cooled, then withered in the sun.
  • Next, they are rolled, which gives the leaves a particular shape.
  • The leaves are then dried.
  • The final stage consists of covering the dried leaves, which are spread out in a thick layer andsprinkled with water, with a canvas sheet in a hot, humid room.
