Entirely Old Arbor tea from the Spring 2017 Harvest from Gu Shan 孤山 in Jinggu County of Simao. Gu Shan (lit. Lonely Mountain) is located in a roadless area of Jinggu.
The "Gu Shan" tea trees range in age from 70 to 120 years old growing at an altitude of about 1800 meters. The trees are pure assamica varietal (大叶种), with leaves that are large and stout, and have a deep olive-green color. This tea will brew up a perfectly balanced thick and pungent brew. This is a strong and bitter tea, but very balanced with good body, returning sweetness, and long-lasting mouthfeel. Cha Qi is strong, but is forgiving and warm.
