This Shu Pu Erh is harvested in Yunnan province, China. It is made from Assamica tea plants.

When Pu Erh Shu teas are being fermented, some leaves are pressed into a block shape that doesn't lose its shape even when infused: this is called Lao Cha Tou.

A sweet, gourmet Pu Erh tea with mossy, vanilla and cinnamon notes. A rare Grand Cru.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional

Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower.
