Nannuo Mountain is one of my favorite places in the world. Nestled in southern Yunnan, in the heart of Pu'er country, the Akha inhabitants of Nannuo Mountain have been producing tea there for centuries. This flight is designed to transport you to Nannuo Mountain circa 2009 tea-style with one Red, one Sheng Pu'er and one Shu Pu'er tea. Experiencing the same region across differing styles will help develop your familiarity with the dì wèi 地味--meaning “earth flavor” or “terroir”--of the mountain. These teas hail from before the fire at Li Shulins home which destroyed the remaining stock of vintage teas he had accumulated over the years. The vintage teas we have from Li are all that remains and we are excited to share them as a cohesive package.
