Sharing excellence


  • 100% pure old and ancient tree leaves
  • Unspoiled hard to reach forest tea garden with clean old trees
  • Powerful: nice bitterness, low astringency, intense flavour getting sweeter with age

From a secret forest tea garden in Meng Sa (Lincang) comes this very unique, powerful tea. It has very good flavour intensity, strong aftertaste, unique single estate character, deep Qi and flavour transformation.

Pleasant bitterness in the first half of the session that later becomes sweeter and sweeter without losing character, it has had Taiwanese natural storage and will get even sweeter and thicker with age.

The long term puerh drinker will immediately find the charming gentle strength that can only come from cakes made with 100% pure old tree. The beginner may need a few sessions to really appreciate the depth and power this tea has.

This is what the maker has to say of the tea: “After searching for years I’ve had the good fortune (tea karma) to have the rare opportunity to pick tea from this unspoiled garden. The area is hard to reach, full of ancient trees, clean and pure. Made with traditional technique, the flavour increases with aging, it has a unique strong qi and taste. I made this with my heart to share with my friends, I hope you can enjoy it”.

To celebrate my birthday and the release of the first Puerh.uk Green Mark Tier 4 cake, silly low price for this tier quality of tea, enjoy!

The first 3 feedback we received about this tea:


Puerh.uk Green Mark Tier 4 Series Introduction
  • Genuine old tree puerh from clean natural tea gardens
  • What real tea masters make for themselves and their friends
  • Exclusive pressings only obtainable with relationships (guanxi)
  • Very high quality/price ratio

The best tea is not for sale, it’s available only through relationships. Tiny productions made by real puerh masters for themselves and their friends, originally in white paper or with minimal wrappers.

Tier 4 is about 0.1% of available Puerh, with medium-high % of old and ancient tree leaves and with all taste qualities easily detectable, tea that is very rarely found on the open market.

Years of relationships went into obtaining small amounts of this tea, because it’s generally not commercially available we’re able to offer it at a very moderate price for the very high quality. The only catch: we can usually only get a small quantity.

357g cakes, approx. 80-85g triangles (individually packed).

    This tea is amazing. Lovely fragrance and quick sweetness that brings a sense of peace and calm. The chi on this tea is what I needed to get through the day. Thank you.

    Dry leaves scented with confit lemon, singular and attractive, hinting at a lower ph. Satisfying deep mouthfeel with balanced acidity, mild bitterness, and sweetness. Wet leaves in the pot have an attractive hint of camphor, from the cup aromas are honeyed. Palate is also honeyed with wild grass character. Medium persistence finishing stony. Calming. I like it!

    So tasty! The taste and texture of the tea are just satisfying, I can’t explain it. I find myself just drinking and drinking, one cup after the next. This could go on endlessly! The Qi is soothing and relaxing and before you know it time has flown by. Truly a favourite!

    Hits with menthol and fruit, not bad especially the early steeps.

    You’re right, as a beginner I needed a second sample of this (an experience with some other teas from Paolo’s collection) to start to notice some of the depths of this tea.

    The aromas are enticing and mysterious – hard for me to put into words but they evoke really strong childhood memories. The taste is really distinctive and (for me) now treads the right balance between strength and delicious bitterness.
    On this second sample, I noticed the Qi within a few moments of starting my first cup. It seemed quite centring and (for me, this morning) calming and helping me to focus.

    So easy to drink, delicious and perfect for every occasion! 😊

    Having bight a sample I then went back for a whole cake.
    This tea intrigues me. Whilst there’s some backbone of bitterness it’s nothing overpowering and amongst this is a softness (almost like marshmallow)

    Depending on how hard I brew it, it gives me a smooth mouthfeel and the feel and taste stayed in my mouth for several minutes afterwards

    Subsequent brews become thirst quenching and more’ish

    I started getting a very centred body feeling soon after the first sips
