This Grand Cru comes from Yunnan. The leaves were harvested from Mengku Da Ye tea plants at over 1,600 metres above sea level. It is a Sheng tea cake, that is a ""raw"" Pu Erh which ferments naturally after 10 years.
A tea which develops sophisticated vegetal, fruity and mineral fragrances as well as vanilla hints against a powdery texture.
This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
