This bundle includes five 100g pressed cakes of sheng pu’er tea
for 500g total (100 sessions).
The Dongsa Cooperative in Qianjiazhai offers this collection as an opportunity to take a deep dive into the remarkable terroir of the oldest and wildest tea forest in the world through five unique perspectives on their hand-foraged and hand-finished sheng pu’er, each pressed in special 100g cakes using their traditional carved stone mold.
These five cakes were picked by one family – the Li Family – from wild trees on the mountains above their home at over 2000 meters elevation, benefitting from the misty mornings, the deep tree roots reaching for mineral-rich mountain springs, and of course, the tremendous biodiversity inside this protected natural preserve.
This kit highlights cakes of different leaf types and tree ages, ranging from around 100 years to over a thousand year old tea trees, including one cake pressed from a single tree – the ultimate expression of true single origin. Compare the single tree to younger blends from the Li Family’s hillside including the fruity and sweet Gu Hua harvest, the spiced and deep Zun pressing, and the rich flavorful Huang Pian, plus a limited edition Gu Hua sheng pressed with the tea flowers blooming across the hillside at picking time.
This is an excellent opportunity to not only explore the full range of Qianjiazhai’s famous sheng ancient tree sheng pu’er, but to build a collection for long term aging while it is still possible to bring in limited teas like these so that you can enjoy them for years to come as they grow and develop even richer nuance.
