Ai Lao Shan 2018 - 哀牢山
A great ancient tree (gu shu) tea from Meng Song (Meng Hai).
Meng Song Xiang is a village in southern Menghai. This tea is made of ancient tree material (gu shu, 古树). It has a full body and a pleasant bitterness, which lingers in the mouth as a fruity sweetness for a long time.
Soft yet bold taste. Upfront bitterness that turns into a sweet sensation.

For all our Puerh teas we recommend Gong Fu style brewing using 5-8g of tea on 100ml water. Rinse the tea briefly and then do repeating steeps (up to 6-12) of 10-20 seconds.
