This tea is grown in the Chinese province of Yunnan. The young leaves and buds from old trees are hand harvested and carefully selected in early months of the year between February and March, to capture the most tender part of Pu-Erh. The appearance is unique and distinct with golden yellow aged buds. The processing is unique - the leaves undergo traditional fermentation stages in humid condition. In the history of Pu-Erh, all Royal Pu-Erhs were used for the offering of Chinese imperial for hundreds of years. They were used for diplomatic gifting, they are sometimes referred as the 'Treasure Pu-Erh' or 'Tribute Tea'. This vintage cup is deep red, with a distinctive, earthy taste and an unforgettable experience.
