The 2019 vintage of our all time favourite sheng puer.
Da Xue Shan (大雪山), the Snowy Mountain, is located in the northern part of Yunnan province. The northerly climate has an interesting effect on the teas: they tend to have a fresher, more fragrant character that differentiates them from their southern relatives.
Our friends here pay extreme attention to the process of making the teas. Even for the shortest steps of withering, they cover the leaves with gauze so that they stay clean and unharmed by bugs and insects. This care echoes in the superb quality of every tea they sell.
Quantity: 5-6 gramm per 150 ml.
