This Grand Cru is harvested from the Rangsai Mountain, at an altitude of over 1,600 meters. It is made from Da Ye tea plants. Mao Cha is a raw tea used to make Pu Erh. It develops an aromatic profile similar to that of a young Sheng.

A powdery Mao Cha with a fine astringency which gives the vegetal, mineral and apricot notes a long finish.
