Spring 2017 "Jinggu Bàng" Sheng / Raw Puerh from Crimson Lotus Tea :: FREE SHIPPING
This tea is a fantastic representative of Jinggu area material. We were very pleased to find this tea this year. We were equally pleased to work with the talented Du Xi ( 杜溪 ); a local Kunming artist. He created the original artwork which we adapted to the puerh cake.
Chinese mythology wouldn't be complete without the antics of the Monkey King, "Sun Wukong", and his magical staff the "Jīngū Bàng". He received this mythical weapon from the Dragon King of the East Sea. In the painting the Monkey King is doing battle with the Jingu Bang against Erlang Shen and his dog Xiàotiān quǎn.
