Tradition - Bulang Mountain Sheng Puerh Blend - 2 oz
Tradition was an intentionally blended tea from a wild forest of Bulang Mountain in Yunnan. The trees of this protected forest range from 100- 200 years old. A friend of our tea community collected leaves for five years, combining the best three years, to produce a tea in 2017 that drinks more like a sheng from early 2000's. We were struck by how much this tea transforms with the first steepings containing mossy, woodsy and kelp flavors, which then transform into lemongrass and stewed fruit through many many steepings. The tea becomes bright, colorful and round as it opens, with a strong Qi that moves throughout the body. This is a beautiful addition to the Living Tea collection of younger sheng puerh.
The name Tradition comes from the belief that this is the way Sheng Puerh used to be produced, with the intention of aging further.
