2013 Yunnan Sourcing "Autumn Bing Dao" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Our first ever production from Bing Dao village. We have produced other teas from neighboring villages but this Autumn we met a grower that had excellent tea from wild and natural tea garden in Bing Dao village.
The tea is from 80-100 year old tea trees growing naturally and no pesticides or artificial fertilizers are used. As with all our Autumn 2013 and onward productions they have been tested in a lab for pesticide residues. This is a pure tea both in material and taste.
The brewed tea is highly aromatic and cooling in the mouth and throat. There is a thickness to it and a bitterness that immediately transforms in nectar-like sweetness. Cha Qi is strong but pleasant and energizing.
Vintage: October 2013 material, November 2013 pressing
Quantity: 250 cakes in total produced (100 kg)
Area: Bing Dao village, Mengku County, Lincang Prefecture
This tea has been tested in a certified laboratory for 26 pesticides, and is within the EU MRL limits set for those 26 pesticide residues. For a full list of the 26 pesticides we tested for and more information about MRL testing and the EU Food and Safety commission click on this link.
