Mengku Old Arbor 2017
So many great teas have come to us from the area of Lincang. We visited this growing region in 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed the fresh air and wonderful tea grown there. Mengku County is home to many wonderful raw and ripe pu’er teas and this one is no exception. This tea was harvested from old arbor trees in March of 2017.
The leaves are furry and broad, and the tea liquor is clear and golden yellow. Its fresh taste will excite the tongue with full flavor and delicate floral notes. Get some of this today! You can thank us later.
