Da Xue Shan (Big Snow Mountain) Sheng Puerh, Ancient Arbor, Spring 2018
These leaves are picked from ~400-500 year old trees grown above 2,000 meters in Da Xue Shan, Lincang, Yunnan, which means "Big Snow Mountain". The trees haven't been picked for at least 2 years, and the tea garden is around a 2 hours motorcycle ride from town. The tea is very viscous, sweet, and vegetal and instills a feeling of peace, relaxation, and cleanliness like the forest itself. This tea is on the cooler side of the spectrum; I would recommend having some food before drinking. As of Fall 2019, I've seen many people have deep meditative experiences while drinking this tea, likely due to the tree age and amazing processing.
