Youle is one of the ancient six great mountains of Yunnan, famous for the production of Pu'er tea. The taste of this imposing mountain is enclosed into the leaves of its tea trees, which release the quiet freshness of the mountain air during the infusion.  Smooth, round in the mouth, and with a slightly bitter aftertaste, this sheng pu is a delight for the palate, and a comforting and refreshing beverage.

The long tea-growing history of Youle mountain started with Jinuo people, who still preserve the centuries-old knowledge on tea production, and convey its ever-changing flavor into the carefully picked and stone-pressed tea leaves that make up this fascinating cake.
