Product Description

From the Jing Mai Mountains, in a protected park situated above 5,000 feet, this Black Tea, made from the same trees as Jing Mai’s famous Pu Erhs, is first sun-dried like a Pu Erh but then fermented like a Black Tea to about 80%. It is left loose with full intact leaves. This complex process produces a tea that will store well and improve with proper aging.  It is made from trees averaging 500 year old or more, and exhibits the rare complexity, smoothness, and subtlety only found in tea made from trees of this age.
