2019 Tiger Hunter Sheng Puer Tea
Description: This young tea is light on its feet. Mineral and floral flavors spearhead the first steep and then relax into a melon-like sweetness - like the hunter after a long day’s chase.
This spring sheng puer was made by Mr. Liu Zhao Quan in April 2019 from the Yunnan Big Leaf cultivar. The tea leaves were grown in a village called Bang Wai near Fudong Town, Lan Cang County, Xishuangbanna. The local population is primarily the La Hu people. “La” means tiger and “Hu” means hunter. As the name implies, they were known for being skilled hunters in the past.
