IMPERIAL GONG TING SHU PU'ER 2015

ORIGIN

Gong Ting literally translates as “palace” or “imperial”, is used to refer to the highest grade, consisting mainly of young buds harvested in early spring. The tea received this name as a tribute to the history of the Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1912), when Pu'Er tea, along with other teas in China, received recognition and was in great demand in the imperial court, proudly bearing the name 'Gong Cha "Palace Tea" ". This tea has always been famous for its rich, intense aroma, pure taste and quickly-coming sweet aftertaste. The drink always turns out thick, with a rich taste and smooth, silky/creamy texture.


This tea is produced in a small production in Simao, Pu'Er city, Yunnan. Hot and humid climate, with rich soil and high altitude creates a perfect environment for tea trees to produce rich and beneficial material so appreciated between Pu'Er tea connoisseurs. An organic plantation located at an altitude of 1800 meters above sea level, where the bushes are planted at a distance from each other to provide the required amount of microelements.
