Powerful, thick, bit brutal. The strongest leaves from our 2023 pu-erh production.

Thick and bold… it’s like a visit in the summer forest. You will find here moss, mushrooms, wild herbs, grassy freshness.

Excellent old tree experience – in aroma, taste and energy.

Very special. Rather for experienced pu-erh lovers.

Good tea for long term storage.

Origin: Ban Po Lao Zhai, Nannuo Shan, Xishuangbanna, Yunnan, China.

Vintage/Harvest: April 2023

Tea vartietal: Camellia Sinensis var Assamica

Tea trees age: 200 and more year old trees


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 10-15 second. We suggest to increase brewing time for 5-10 seconds in each next brewing.
