Tea should benefit
the community that grows it.

This holiday season, all 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, finishing every leaf using hand processing and stone-pressing techniques.

Located at 24°16'13.6"N and 101°12'19.6"E, we selected this approximately 1300 year old tree with Master Zhou for its beautiful microclimate. For this 2016 Single Tree pressing, every leaf was hand picked & gently sun dried before being hand pressed by Master Zhou in a custom carved stone mold. This is a chance to taste tea from one of the oldest trees in the Mt Ailao National Forest Preserve. This true single origin tea has a sparkling texture and incense aroma for wonderful aging potential.

" This year, Master Zhou introduced us to another beautiful ancient tea tree with its own unique micro climate and distinctive flavor and aroma. The tree can be found at 24°16’13.6″N 101°12’19.6″E, at just over 2000 meters. The cooperative was kind enough to set aside the entire harvest of 2016 for us... "
