$52.00 USD $46.80 USD

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

Zao Qiao Di is a small village south of Jinggu Township in Simao Prefecture.  It's a high altitude village (1900 meters) with cool weather year-round and a cold misty spring.   There have been tea trees growing here for more than 200 years, and unlike many other villages the majority of the trees are close to that age.  Our production is from 100-200+ year old tea trees growing naturally on steep hillsides above the village.

The tea is thick and soupy with a sweet, bitter, and nutty taste.  The tea soup is yellow gold.  The brewed leaves are olive-green in color.  This is the last flush of Autumn 2016, picked in the 1st week of October.
