"Shan Hou Gu Shu" (lit. Behind the Mountain Old Tree) is a mountainous area in Jinggu County of Simao where 100-250 year old tea trees are growing.  Shan Hou tea trees are Assamica varietal growing wild without intervention.  Tea is harvested only twice a year, not 4 times a year like in many places.  This gives the tea more strength, body, aroma and cha qi!


Shan Hou tea is thick and sweet with a strong pungent almost savory mushroom broth-like texture and taste.  Very infusable tea that gains intensity gradually and then platueas gradually petering out.  Goes 10-12 infusions!
