Zhu Tong Cha is a tea packed in a bamboo tube, representing the most primitive form of compressed Puerh, even earlier than the technique of compressing tea into common shapes like Bing Cha (cake), Zhuan Cha (brick), and Tuo Cha (nest). The original purpose was only for easy transportation, but as a fringe benefit, the tea ages better and also acquires some bamboo aromas.


This tea comes from Mengsong, an ancient tea mountain located in Menghai county, listed in the "Six Famous Tea Mountains" on the western side of the Lancang River, alongside the well-known Nannuo Shan, Bulang Shan, etc. Inside the bamboo tubes, this tea has aged very well under the favorable conditions of our private storage, presenting satisfactory features of well-aged Puerh: very aromatic, tasty, smooth in texture but energetic in flavor, without any hint of crudity.


You may find some white sheets on the tea, which are the membranes of the bamboo's inner wall. It is no concern of a quality issue and has certain healthy benefits. It also imparts certain bamboo notes to the tea while brewing.
