This Grand Cru comes from Mangfei. The leaves were harvested in 2021 at an altitude of over 1,500 metres. It is a Sheng tea cake, which is a "raw" Pu Erh that ferments naturally after 10 years.
A tea which develops sophisticated apricot, vegetal, floral and vanilla fragrances against a silky texture.

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. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
