Description
Brewing Suggestions
 
This Kai Shan Green Puerh is grown in high altitudes between 1400 and 1700 meters. The tea is harvested from ancient arbor trees rather than the usual younger, smaller bushes. The local "La Gu" minority are people who cherish their mountain homes and care for their environment and their tea farms to produce great teas. The teas produced from He Kai Shan are known for smooth texture, apricot-like fruitiness as well as a trademark sweet green olive-like finish that lingers on the palate and tongue. The hint of smokiness is a subtle background that adds to the complex nature of this interesting Puerh. If you haven't yet started to collect aged teas, this is a good beginning. Treat yourself!

Each tea cake is 357g/12.6oz.

Excellent, lively and smooth October 20, 2018
Reviewer: Cameron from Los Gatos, CA United States  
This is a very mellow tea compared to some other pu'erh's of a similar age. This tea is something so incredibly smooth yet powerful in flavor, with a soft texture that just lubricates the mouth. The tea leaves a pronounced pleasant aftertaste, and the effect of the tea is lasting and comfortable, in mind and taste. This tea is one I quite enjoy.
