“Gong Ting” shou puerh, which literally translates as “Emperor’s Court.” They say it is named this as it was one of the Tribute Teas sent to the court from Yunnan in dynastic times. It is a very tippy tea, meaning it is made from buds. It was also called “White Lotus, Silver/Golden Needle” by some tea lovers back in the day, so we decided to name this well aged Gong Ting tea “White Lotus.” This beautiful 1980s tea was stored very well and seems to have been a nice quality of Gong Ting even when it was new. The liquor is thick, creamy and deep. The Qi is uplifting for a shou, rising from the root.
