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... "
