There are two Da Xue Shan (Big Snow mountains) in Lincang prefecture. One is in Mengku county and the other is in Yong De county. The Da Xua Shan Loose Raw Pu'er is of Spring crop from Mengku Da Xue Shan (Big Snow Mountain). The tea leaves were harvested from a desolated ancient tea garden filled with tea trees between 200 and 300 years old at an altitude of about 1800 meters on the southwestern slope of the mountain. The pu'er itself is full of intense cha qi and is somewhat bitter and pungent. The mouth-feel is strong and fills and stimulates the mouth long after it has been drunk. There is a slight flowery aroma that will become more obvious with aging. The loose raw pu'er is an ideal tea for maturation, with the necessary strong and intense character to become a full-bodied and textured tea as time goes on.
