Ancient Tree Lincang // 2019

Shou Puerh

25g Sample or 200g Cake

From Lincang, Southwest Yunnan Province, China.

This tea is organically grown!

A tightly pressed shou of large coarse leaf material, forming a combination of earth brown and golden tan tones with even distribution of golden buds giving sweet rounded aromas of earth, camphor and moss. The damp leaves give a rounded, earthy, forest floor woodiness but also super sweetness to the aromas. A leather brown, deep red tea soup with high clarity giving a smooth, clean and mellow taste with delicate woody notes, light fruitiness and subtle sweetness.

Cultivated by Thai peoples from ancient large leaved tea species. Harvested in Autumn’19 then carefully and skilfully processed in the same season following the traditional methods of piling techniques creating a quality finished tea, that’s rich in probiotics, the only tea type to be so. Now aged 3 years with deep developed shou character.
