This Grand Cru comes from Lincang. The leaves were harvested in 2019 at an altitude of over 1600 metres. It is a Sheng tea cake, meaning a "raw" Pu Erh which ferments naturally after 10 years.
The aromatic profile of this young Pu Erh Sheng is characterised by its freshness, with vegetal and mineral notes combined with fruity notes.
