Gao Shan Yun Xiang is a premium ripe pu-erh cake from Menghai Tea Factory. There was only batch produced (1501) and it quickly became popular amongst Da Yi collectors due to it's unique taste and powerful aroma. It is said that the blend contains tea from ripe wet piled batches as old as 5 years old...
Another "once in a blue moon" premium production from Da Yi, which was last produced exactly 10 years ago in 2005. The 2005 production and this one are the same recipe, the 2005 production is a modern classic, sought after, and commanding a very high price.
This is meant to the be the ripe counterpart to the "Chu Xin" cake we offer here. The blend is again a tippy ripe blend much like Star of Menghai (勐海之星) or the 0532 blend. There is a creamy texture countered by a betel nut bitter nuttiness.
The name of this production "Chu Xin" means "Foremost in the Heart" and reflects the fine and exquisite nature of this tea. Chu Xin is a blend of Menghai area material from Nan Nuo Mountain, Ba Da Mountain and Bu Lang Mountain areas.
This is a classic Ripe tea blend, called "V93". It is smooth and full in the mouth. It is fermented just enough to break down the bitterness of raw pu-erh while lightly fermented enough to preserve the stimulating cha qi and hui gan of a raw pu-erh. After-taste is sweet and thick. Stock up on this Batch 1501.
