2014 Yunnan Sourcing Autumn Ku Zhu Shan Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Ku Zhu Mountain is near Wenshan village about 7 kilometers southeast of Jing Gu town in Pu'er prefecture (previously known as Simao).
Ku Zhu mountain tea is strong and is much more bitter than their sweeter Yang Ta (another Jing Gu area) counterpart. The taste is something a marriage between Jing Gu and Mengku teas, but entirely unique. From 100+ year old tea trees growing naturally. A premium wild arbor tea with excellent aging possibilities!
400 grams per cake, 7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong
October 2014 harvest (only 70 kilograms produced)
