    Raw Gushu pretty much says it all! Nicely aged for 10 years with good thickness of the liquor.

Raw loose leaf PuErh (not in cakes) from ancient tea trees in Yunnan province. Aged naturally for over 10 years in bamboo baskets. A powerful tea with a pleasing astringency and rich in Chaqi. Perfectly represents its humid, sub tropical terroir with strong flavours of a vibrant and wild forest.

A great tea to drink with heavy and fatty food to cleanse the palate and the stomach but delicious on its own as a potent mood enhancer.

The tea trees that made this tea began their life in the 15th Century! Whilst Europe began to blossom in the rennaissance period, these trees began sprouting leaves in the deepst and wildest forests on Yunnan. Why does the age of the tea tree matter? The older the tree the longer, deeper and bigger the roots which means that they are able to absorb more of the minerals from the soil for their leaves. This makes a tea which is naturally richer than young trees. Drink a bit of history with this delicious Pu Erh.
