Product Description

This Mengsong Mountain 2010 Spring Nanbenhe Village Old-Tree Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake is quite special from Mengsong mountain located in Menghai county, Xishuanbanna prefecture (in Yunnan province, China) that borders on Burma. There are mainly three minorities living in this big mountain: Dai, Lagu, and Hani. Each minority has lived on this mountain from ancient times until now, and their ancestors grew tea trees from the time that they first occupied the mountains over 300 years ago. Therefore, many tea trees in Mengsong mountain are over 300 years of age.

This tea is from Nanbenhei village, where the Hani minority have lived for over 400 years, and the land where the tea tree arbors lie almost at the valley bottom among all the mountains in Mengsong. This tea contains only old-tree pu-erh, which has a deep aroma and throat feeling and honey stweetness. It can be infused many times. This tea is extremely suitable for your private collection and is provided directly from Hani minority farmer in Mengsong mountain.

The tea is stone-pressed and wrapped by traditional Dai hand-made paper, which is the best for long-term storage.

Note: pour the water around the edge of the Gaiwan to avoid burning the tender tea buds; don’t pour the hot water on the tea leaves directly. Do not use any strainer/filter to filter this tea since it is clean enough. Also, use of the strainer will greatly influence the denseness of the tea liquid.
