Yunnan Tu Lin Tea Co., Ltd. was founded in 1985 as former state-run Nanjian County Tea Factory. The company is located in Dali Nanjian (大理南澗), an important location in the Ancient Tea Horse Road (chamagudao 茶馬古道). Nanjian Wuliang Mountain (南澗無量山) is where the company established an ecological organic tea plantation to ensure quality and supply.
Like wine, Pu-erh’s quality and taste improve with age. It is oxidized slowly, bringing out a deeper, more varied flavour from the tea. Pu-Erh is the only tea that improves in flavour and value with age. Pu-erh tea is revered for its medicinal qualities, aids digestion, lowers cholesterol and controls obesity.
