Elemental Puerh - 2020 Kunlu Xiao Qiao Mu "KXQM" Sheng Puerh Tea Dragon Balls
This is the exact same material we often press and call "KXQM". That is short for Kunlu Xiao Qiao Mu. This means this material is from the small arbor trees in Kunlu Shan. We love Kunlu and we love this material! It starts off with a warming aroma like bread just out of the oven and follows up with super sweet semi floral experience similar to cotton candy. This is a creamy tea with little astringency or bitterness. There are happy grassy notes layered with jasmine and orchid florals. This tea has good body and represents the essence of Kunlu well.
"Elemental Puerh" is our collection of single origin, direct sourced, hand rolled puerh tea dragon balls. These are high quality examples of individual mountain personality.
Each wrapper is stamped with an infographic containing all the important origin details. You have the year of picking, the season of picking, the mountain name and symbol, the distance from the equator, and special indicators for wild or old tree material.
Each dragon ball is individually steamed and hand rolled. They weigh 8 grams and are perfect for a session in your gongfu2go portable tea brewer or gaiwan / teapot. Each order contains 6x 8g dragon balls.
This material is from Spring of 2020 and was picked from small arbor tree material growing in Bulang.
