2017 Yunnan Sourcing "Da Hu Sai" Wild Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Our Spring 2017 "Da Hu Sai" production is from the Da Zhong Mountain area. Da Zhong Mountain has the oldest tea trees in the Da Hu Sai area, ranging from 120-200 years in age. It is also the highest altitude area in Da Hu Sai. Steep hillsides with good drainage and sun exposure gives this tea a strong vibrant taste and cha qi. The tea trees are growing naturally, and no pesticides or artificial fertilizers are used!
The Da Hu Sai village tea is strong with fast mouth-watering effect. The taste is thick with both astringent and bitter character that stays in the mouth and is gradually replaced by a sweet syrupy thickness. The mouth feel is strong and stays for a long time after drinking. Da Zhong Mountain tea especially is quite bitter up front with less astringency at the tail-end than most Lincang old arbor pu-erh teas.
