    The cooperative's Zun series pressings is a careful blend of maocha from trees aged between about three hundred and eight hundred years old, picked for a balanced and rich full body and aroma. These old trees grow in one of the oldest and most remote tea forests in the world, on Mt. Ailao. Every leaf is hand picked and sun-dried.


  • 'A single eight hundred year old tree can yield up to three kilograms of finished dry leaf. The Dongsa Cooperative picks each of these trees and keeps their leaf material separate. The finished sheng pu’er maocha can either be sold as a single tree lot, blended with other 800 year trees for a single age statement pressing, or blended with 300-500 year leaves for Zun pressings.'
