Jing Mai Gushu 2012

Jing Mai Gushu 2012 is another gem from our friend, Tea Master Panda. This gushu tea leaves from Jing Mai have been pressed in Yang Mings tiny tea factory  to traditional puerh cakes. The tea was well stored and matured by Tea Master Panda himself.
The tea leaves are from several hundred years old tea trees (Gushu) from Da Ping Zhang in Jing Mai. The tea garden with the old tea trees is located at about 1600m. The the top of the mountain forms a plateau instead of a peak. Therefore, all tea leaves were grown on a similar altitude.

Who is Tea master Panda?

Tea Master Panda stands as both a dear friend and a guiding mentor to us, particularly renowned for his deep expertise in the realm of Pu-erh tea. Originating from the culturally rich province of Sichuan — a fact reflected in his name — he journeyed to Yunnan, driven by his fervent passion for the art of Pu-erh tea making.

Tea Master Panda’s mastery extends well beyond the boundaries of tea. He is also a distinguished calligrapher, blending the graceful art of Chinese calligraphy with his tea expertise. Furthermore, his comprehensive knowledge of Chinese history enriches his approach to tea, bringing a unique perspective that intertwines historical richness with the subtleties of tea crafting.

In his multifaceted role, he is not just a connoisseur of Pu-erh tea, but also a preserver of Chinese artistic and historical traditions, offering invaluable insights and teachings in the world of tea.
