Luminous Gate - Jingmai, Yunnan 2018 - 2 oz.
A classic shou Puerh pressed from a blend of old-growth and younger trees in the pristine forests of Jingmai, Yunnan. Due to its remote location, many of the old-growth forests of Jingmai have remained undisturbed by the agrochemicals that affect so many areas of Yunnan. This comforting, dark Shou is fully pressed at the source in Jingmai rather than transported as looseleaf to large factories, which means that the quality and care of production is superior to other shou puerh, which are often produced from leftover leaves in the large factories. In other words, Luminous Gate is made with intention, deliberation, care and sustainability in mind. The greater care in production comes through with a powerful grounding energy and smooth, deep, thick brew. We find Luminous Gate is best infused in a sidehandle pot or even boiled over charcoal for longer tea sessions.
