Tea should benefit
the community that grows it.

This holiday season, all Pu’er Monday sales of Qianjiazhai pu’er and black tea support the Zhenyuan Jiujia Wengang Village Primary School.

25% of proceeds will be donated to assist with purchasing new books and supporting the operation of the sleep-away elementary school where Mr. Deng and his family work as faculty and as part of the Zhenyuan Dongsa cooperative.

 

Produced By Dongsa Cooperative

The Qianjiazhai Dongsa Cooperative was established to be a steward to the oldest tea forest in the world, wild-foraging and hand-finishing every leaf using traditional craft.

Master Zhou works with his students in the Qianjiazhai Dongsa Cooperative to start introducing shu pu’er fermentation and crafting techniques more widely across the mountain. This stunningly clean, rich and foresty example is crafted from pre-Qingming harvest maocha picked from one hundred to five hundred year trees, and wrapped in bamboo leaf cut fresh from the native bamboo growing across the mountainside. After only two years of aging, it displays the clean rich complexity normally only seen on shu pu’er a decade old or older.
