This tea was a small production by one of our good tea friends in Kunming. He has been in business since the 90's and in the puerh boom in the mid-2000's was making large quantities of ancient tree teas. As a tea lover, he always kept some special small batches back. Unfortunately some recent hard times & the economic downturn in China have forced him to part with his treasures. Fortunately, for tea lovers like us though, it means that we now have access to these special teas.

This tea was produced in 2006 from Naka village from pure ancient tree tea. The total size of the batch was 70kg and he pressed these into 250g cakes with plain white wrappers.

This tea has had clean storage, with pure ancient tree taste, oily texture and thick richness in the mouth and throat. There is a lovely bitterness that quickly changes to sweet. The one criticism we could find is some astringency remaining due to the dry Kunming storage. This is quickly washed away with the mouth watering effects of the tea though and the rich elements remain in the mouth with long and steady aftertaste.

The most obvious effect of this tea is the strong, stoning energy and body-feel. It's one for qi-lovers for sure!
