2009 Guan Zi Zai "Zao Chun Nan Nuo Shan" Raw Pu-erh tea
We are proud to offer this high quality wild arbor tea cake made entirely from the first flush of spring sun-dried pu-erh from Nan Nuo mountain! Wild arbor teas come from trees that are allowed to grow naturally without being cropped, these trees grow without being fertilized or sprayed… natural undergrowth is allowed to grow freely around the trees. Wild arbor and ancient arbor should not be confused… ancient arbor trees are very old and rare, whereas wild arbor trees are many and vary in age from young to hundreds of years old (at which point they are considered Ancient arbor).
This tea was entirely hand-processed from start to finish and the thick satisfying soup attests to that! The tea is tippy but with plenty of dark heavy leaves to round out the flavor. Strong pungent cha qi and a very “Nan Nuo” taste! Just 1000 kilograms produced in total!
