Luo Shui Dong Arbor Tree Sheng Pu'erh Tea Cake Waterfall Cave 200g 落水洞
This tea hails from Luo Shui Dong village, literally "waterfall cave" in Chinese. Luo Shui Dong is one of the most famous villages in the Yiwu mountains and Yiwu is one of the six historical pu'erh tea mountains of Yunnan province. Luo Shui Dong has a long history of producing puerh tea, renowned for its high-quality tea, and is currently populated with about 23 families, about 100 villagers in total. For the past two years, Luo Shui Dong puerh tea has won the gold medal in the annual Yiwu puerh tea competition. This spring, the Yiwu mountain region had its most serious drought in a decade, and the tea buds and leaves suffered significant damage, which resulted in a decrease in tea production. Although the price of tea from this village has increased year after year, its puerh tea remains in high demand.
