This tea comes to us from Phoenix Mountain in Yunnan province. The leaves were harvested 1,700metres above sea level in spring 2019. This is a highly delicate grade of Pu Erh Shu known as GongTing.

Pu Erh Shu is a type of tea that undergoes accelerated, assisted fermentation. The dried leaves arespread out in a thick layer, sprinkled with water, then covered with canvas in a warm, humid room.

This Grand Cru stands out thanks to its smooth texture and damp wood, humus and cinnamon noteswhich are subtly enhanced with smoked hints.
