One of our two Year of the Monkey raw puers, this tea uses Mengku arbor material, and has an excellent, balanced profile that is very easy to accept. There is a prominent sweetness that stays with you well after drinking it.

As with most Lincang region teas, this one is low on bitterness and roughness, and a good starting point for those new to raw puers. This tea can easily be described as refreshing, yet still has plenty of body and substance, making it an enjoyable daily drinker.

In honour of it being Year of the Monkey here in China, we’re extremely happy to be able to feature the artwork of Kelly Puissegur for this tea. Like the monkeys on the wrapper, this tea is playful, agile, and wholesome fun for the whole family!

    Light and refreshing tea! The color of the liquor is a pretty clear yellow. It reminds me of cantaloupe skin. Very gentle taste with absolutely no bitterness. Pleasant vegetal notes
