Yiwu Ancient Tree

Sourced entirely from a grove of trees one hundred years in age or more from our dear friend, Ms. Qing—this Gushu ("Ancient Tree") black tea is an astonishing example of how tea trees improve with age. It is incredibly rare to find ancient tree material processed into black tea—especially from a classic indication—because of its equivalent value as a pu'er. Yiwu is one of Pu'er tea's "Six Famous Tea Mountains" of origin and one of the most tradition-oriented production regions in Yunnan. Harvested, withered, rolled and sun-dried by age-old techniques, this is a collector's item and will continue to improve with time. Notes of vanilla bean, pipe tobacco, and redwood.
