Ku Zhu Mountain is near Wenshan village about 7 kilometers southeast of Jing Gu town in Pu'er prefecture (previoiusly 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
April 2018 Harvest (only 50 kilograms produced)
