Pu-erh tea originates in Yunnan province, a remote mountainous area in China. It has been widely used as healthy drink for more than 1,000 years. Ancient Chinese medicine books documented its positive effects on digestion and refreshing. Recent empirical studies further verify its significant impacts on weight control and cardiovascular diseases prevention. As naturally fermented tea, the flavor of Raw Pu-erh tea gets better with age. It can be stored for decades in ventilated and dry condition.
This tea cake is harvested on the year of 2014, from Bangnan Xishuangbanna, with an elevation of 4000 ft. The mist-shrouded mountain is famous for well-preserved vegetation and industry-free ethnic minority tribes. Aini ethnicity plucks the most tender leaves from the trees, characterized by “two leaves in one bud”. After dozens of traditional processing procedures, more than 6,000 leaves are produced into one piece of tea cake. You may enjoy the fragrant flavour, long history and traditional culture of Pu-erh tea.
