Immortal Dew Gu Shu Cha (神仙古樹生茶, Shén Xiān Gǔ Shù Shēng Chá, "Immortal Ancient Tree Sheng Tea") - This tea is a single-farm, single-mountain ancient tree Sheng Pu'er tea grown and processed by master Li Shulin of Nannuo mountain. It is a blend of three ancient tree patches on Nannuo Mountain: Duoyi, Banpo, and Shitou. These patches are known for their sweet, fragrant, and bitter characters respectively that produce a balanced blend. Limited quantities of ancient tree material mean that producing one large batch of a blend of different patches is more economical than focusing on specific ancient tree patches, although the market has been tending more toward the single-patch teas as consumers grow more sophisticated. This balanced, easy-to-steep tea makes a great introduction to the soft, sweet character and uplifting Qi of high quality ancient tree Sheng Pu'er without being prohibitively expensive.
This is my first time trying out a Sheng Puerh and it’s delicious and really smooth. After a few sessions, I am still pleased with the results. I also didn’t know old trees produced stunning teas!
