"Spring Buds" Chun Jian GuShu Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake, 2012


The Great Emperor of China asked the wise Lao Cha:

— Sensei, for many years now, I've been searching my Empire for a Sheng Pu-erh that is aged and mature and yet refreshing and crisp. For a kind of tea that would combine pleasant bitterness with even more pleasant sweetness. In other words, I'm looking for a pu-erh that would have both – yin and yang. But alas, I haven't succeeded in my search yet. Maybe you, the Grand Tea Master, came across such tea? 

— Yes, The Great Emperor of All Under Heaven, I know of such tea. Chun Jian of 2012, from Fengqing, is the pu-erh that you are looking for.  Made of the buds and large leaves of the ancient trees, this pu-erh is the real embodiment of Yin and Yang and possesses a strong Cha Qi!


Our Fengqing Ancient Tree Chun Jian Raw Pu-erh is made exclusively from the leaves of the ancient large-leaf tea tree. Chun Jian stands for the teas picked during a specific time period, which lasts only from March 10th to April 20th. Tea picked at this time is known to possess exceptionally fresh and aromatic qualities, as well as an abundance of amino acids.

Compared to Ripe Pu-erh, this Raw Pu-erh has far more antioxidants, more bitter notes, yet an unforgettable lingering sweet aftertaste. When enjoying, take a look at its distinct bright yellowish-green color and savor every sip of the strong honey fruit taste. 


NOTE: The pu-erh stand that's on the photos is not included.
