Dong Guo, Ancient Arbor Sheng Puerh, Spring 2017
Dong Guo grows in a rocky environment with difficult conditions, and its exposure to the elements shows in its powerful character. The taste and smell are quite strong for Lincang Puerh, and it has a powerful yet smooth Qi. This tea is exceptional for aging, and it is also amazing to drink now. The Dong Guo teamaker is a very confident man with strong Qi. He is very proud of his tea, and we believe this is reflected in the tea which has a strong, bold character.
The tea trees live at 1,900-2,200 meters in Xi Ban Shan, MengKu, Lincang, Yunnan, China. The trees are ~250-300 years old.
6 grams of tea brews 15-20 rounds, and one can use as little as 1-2 grams of leaves for 6+ pots of tea.
