From the most sought after area in Nan Nuo Shan comes this 2015 Spring tea.  Intoxicating notes of tobacco, vanilla, honey and orchid.  

Origin: Ban Po Lao Zhai, Nan Nuo Shan, Menghai County, Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province - Early Spring Harvest 

Brewing Instructions:

Breaking the cake: This cake can easily be broken apart by hand. Gently break off a portion of the cake, then further break the piece down to its individual leaves. 

Rinsing the leaves:  It is common to rinse the leaves before steeping, as this helps remove any smaller particles of leaf or dust. Using hot water, steep the tea for no more than 10 seconds. Strain the water from the leaves. The tea is then ready to brew with new water.
