  • Inside Story

    Starting in the south of Yunnan province, Xishuangbanna is the home of Pu Er tea and some of the best comes from a region known as ‘Six Famous Mountains’. It has been grown here since at least the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220 AD). It is from Xishuangbanna that Pu Er began its often long journey to the rest of the world increasing in quality, taste and value as it travelled.
    An abundance of colourful minority communities make their home in this area including the Dai, Yao, Hani and Lisu as well as numerous hill tribes such as the Bulang, Jinuo and Aini.

  • Ambience

    DRY LEAF: Small, twisted leaves of dark & light chocolate colour leaves & buds with dust like appearance. Fragrance carries an intense notes of musk, wet forest earth, mushrooms and leather.
    INFUSED LEAF: Infused leaves are dark brown in colour with more persistent aroma of decaying wood, damp and dingy cellar.
    LIQUOR: Cup has a brilliant burgundy colour, thick liquid almost as red wine & coffee mixed together. Aroma is sweet, cherry wood like with a hint of vet moss. The mouth-feel is full-bodied, almost buttery with leather, dried fruit and decaying wood notes and hints of bitter chocolate. After-taste is velvety with sweet persistence of burnt sugar. There is no acidity in the cup and no astringency. The tea is well balanced, smooth and sweet. Only for Gourmet people :)
