This is a sheng pu-erh made from tea leaves handpicked from the Nanpo Laozhai village in the early spring of 2014. It brews light golden liquor with a mild aroma of almonds. Its flavors can be described as creamy and clean, with hints of magnolia.

This pu-erh hails from the Nanpo Laozhai village occupied by the Lahu minority group. Nanpo is one of the five villages governed under Bingdao Cunweihui in Mengku county. It is located on the west-bank mountains of the Nanmeng river that runs through this region. The oldest existing human-cultivated tea tree garden in Mengku county is located in Nanpo Laozhai, which is 5 km from the renowned Bingdao Laozhai village. Even though it did not receive the widespread fame and attention of its neighbor, it holds its own by providing unique array of flavors. Difference in the soil components and plant characteristics in each village create distinct flavors of tea.
