Youle is considered as one of Six Famous Tea Mountains of Xishuangbanna.

2007 Youle Gushu Sheng Pu-Erh comes from Ya Nuo village area – one of only few places in Youle with gushu trees.

Tea was stored in natural Yunnan mountain environment for almost 17 years.

Lovely sheng with “semi-aged” profile. Not aggressive at all – warming, honey like with notes of forest, moss and flowery incenses. Aroma of fresh hay is also present.

The most charming for me is extremely clean aftertaste – it’s long, sweet and very pure – untouched by any rough unpleasant notes. Literally ZERO storage aroma.

*we don’t show you wrapper photo because it’s a wrapper with “Yiwu” name on it and we don’t want to be misleading. It was random generic wrapper available at small factory at the time of pressing 🙂 

Origin: Ya Nuo Village area, Youle Mountain, Xishuangbanna, Yunnan, China.

Vintage/Harvest: Spring 2007

Tea vartietal: Camellia Sinensis var Assamica

Tea trees age: gushu trees above 200 years old.


Temperature of water and amount of leaves: 100 C 5-7g/100ml.
Suggested brewing method: Yixing clay teapot or gaiwan of low capacity. First, you should pre-heat empty teapot/gaiwan and tea cups with boiling water. When the teapot is warmed, then you put the tea leaves in. After smelling hot and dry leaves in the pot, rinse the tea for 5-10 seconds using boiling water and afterwards pour out all the water from your pot. The process of rinsing tea leaves is often defined as a waking the tea and is very important for quality of next brewings. Main aim of waking the tea is to remove caffeine and eventual pollution from old tea aged for many years. First drinkable infusion should be very short- not more than 10-20 second. We suggest to increase brewing time for 5-10 seconds in each next brewing.
