Nannuo sheng pu has a typical bitter flavor that gives it an initial astringency, with a surprising floral aftertaste that lingers for a long time in the palate, and in the teacup, after drinking the clear liquor. No other tea can match with its long-lasting aroma and fragrance, and with its lively flavor that contains all the freshness of the mountain air, and the sweetness of the stream waters that moisten its land.

In order to learn and appreciate the complexity of Pu'er, we may start from tasting Nannuo Sheng pu. It is here that we grow of our precious wild forest tea trees, and we take care of them in a natural way, without using any mechanical process or chemical fertilizer.

We learned from the age-long experience and competences of the Hani minorities that have inhabited this land for centuries. Their culture is as prosperous and complex as the taste of the tea leaves they pick, carefully and by hand.
