Our tea production
This tea comes from the tea forest we own in Yunnan, in Nannuo and Lunan/Pasha mountain.
We take care of each leg of the production: from the care of the under-forest until package and distribution.
Generations of masters
Our production is entirely supervised by Yan Kunli, that was born and raised on Nannuo mountain, and in 2009 won the Pu'er Shengpu producer competition for the highest Shaqing skills.
He is the master in his craft, and we are proud to have him with us.
