You know it is a special tea when Wu De names it after something from LOTR; his favorite book growing up! (Bindbole is the oldest forest in the Shire.) This 1980s shou puerh is among our all-time favorite teas. Wu De says it is "top 10" for him. Most aged loose-leaf tea has had tea leaves added to it over time to increase weight. This tea is pure 1980s Menghai shou. It was a blend when it began but no one has added anything since. Also, the storage is immaculate!
