Sharing excellence


  • Complex, powerful, extremely clean and alive
  • Ancient wild trees
  • Taiwan dry storage

Xi Zi Hao production from Mengku Da Xue Shan, idyllic land of pristine jungle with an abundance of wild-growing, unmanaged old trees.

A website put the age of trees at “700-1300 years” which seems rather optimistic, though you can certainly taste and feel that it contains a significant amount of unmanaged ancient trees in the blend.

From tasting, the tea obviously contains a significant % (perhaps 100%) of wild puerh varietals, if you are not sure if that’s your thing, I suggest buying a sample first.

Large amount of spring buds makes for a complex and bright tea with still a fair bit of astringency and strength and therefore plenty of room for transformation. The tight compression of the cake has preserved a lot of its character.

    I’m glad I had the opportunity to sample this tea. The processing and material is clearly very good quality. And it is unique from other boutique puerhs that I have tried. It has very smooth and sweet notes that are similar to a very good black tea.
