A sweet, clear freshness is the first hint of these wild forest sheng pu leaves, delicately picked by hand in our precious land, on Nannuo mountain.

Their inebriating aftertaste is like a fresh breeze after a raging storm: this vigour is the result of the strong endurance of the wild forest, that managed to survive a severe drought, bringing to your cup its strong will to live, and its mesmerizing underwood aroma. 

The 100 gr. format is the best way to storage the young leaves, to let them age slowly and unveil new and ever changing flavours.
