The wise tea master Lao Cha was on a pilgrimage. He heard there is a land far away, where the tea trees have remained untouched. 

After his long journey he reached the high mountains of Guo Gan, Myanmar. He couldn't get enough of the fresh alpine air, wishing he could breathe it forever. 

After carefully harvesting the tea leaves, Lao Cha made the journey back home. A year later during one exceptionally hot day, he found the carefully wrapped pu-erh cake. Just a sip made him feel refreshed and energized, he felt the mountain breeze and the aroma of the trees. 

 

Guo Gan Ancient Tree Raw Pu-erh grows wildly in the luscious alpine forests of Myanmar, at high elevations of more than 1000 meters. The high altitudes play a vital role in the mountain-filled aroma of the tea.

The Guo Gan Myanmar Autonomous Region is known for its pristine ecological environment where tea has been grown for hundreds of years. The wild tea trees are still untouched and grow freely in their original form. Furthermore, absolutely no pesticides or fertilizers are used in the forest.

Our raw Guogan pu-erh tea is still very young. However, unlike other sheng pu-erhs, it is undeniably smooth and mellow. One gong fu style session with this tea can easily last well over 10 infusions. Taking a sip, you will feel refreshed as if you were transported into the high mountainous region of Myanmar, where the tea is from. Surrounded by untouched nature, fresh air, and wonderful woody aromas. 

While this pu-erh cake can be easily enjoyed as is, we also recommend aging it. In fact, this sheng pu-erh is perfect for aging! A few years of aging will surely add complexity and an even smoother, softer taste.
