This Ancient Tree Raw Pu-erh Dragon Ball was produced by using tea leaves picked in early spring in 2016, from tea trees of more than 300 years old in high mountains. The picking standard for making this tea is one bud with one or two leaves. As the Chinese saying goes “the early spring tea is as precious as gold”. Early spring tea is also called “Ming qian” tea, which has high fragrance and affluent inclusions, so this raw dragon ball pu-erh has lingering aroma. Its dry leaves are covered with dense pekoe and have rich pekoe fragrance. Enthusiasts for ancient tree tea can even smell its slight ancient tea rhyme fragrance. Compared with normal large-leaf tea species, this ancient tree tea has more complex taste. Its slight bitterness will immediately disappear and turn to strong sweet aftertaste. Moreover, ancient tree tea always has a little floral aroma.

The recommended brewing method of this raw dragon ball pu-erh is to use teacups, brewing for six minutes, so that its taste is the best and sweetness is prominent.
