Our diamond in the rough, the most refined Ancient trees Sheng pu, produced using only the delicate leaves of the 11 oldest trees in Pasha. Seasons went by, year after year, for more than 500 years, enclosing their relentless succession into these leaves, and resulting in an unmatched flavor: fresh, pure, and daring in the mouth, with the most complex flavor that encapsulates the taste of time passing.

The single-tree tea is produced with special care in each passage, personally by our tea master who oversees the plucking, withering, and of course, shaqing, for which he has been awarded.

These particular leaves can be brewed up to twelve times. With each new infusion, they release new and ever-changing flavors, which invigorate different parts of the mouth, offering a unique tasting experience that starts at each sip.

It is our Ancient trees Sheng Pu at its utmost, in a special collector's format.
