From the Lao Shu tea gardens in the Xishuangbanna jungles of Southern Yunnan, this large variety of sheng pu’er disk is marked by its abundance of wild tree leaves. The newly harvested leaves and buds are taken from ancient forests and left to wither and dry in the sun on bamboo mats. The leaves are then steamed before being pressed into large disks - known as suns. Experiencing the sweet-and-sour amber brew of Lao Shu Bing Cha is like taking a stroll through the old tea trees of the jungle—humbling and invigorating all at once.
Lao Shu Bing Cha is sold in a 100g disk for $30.00.
