2015 Hai Lang Hao "Yi Shan Mo" Yi Wu Ancient Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
One of the most premium Ancient Arbor tea cakes that Hai Lang will produce this year. The 2010/11 Yi Shan Mo cakes are highly sought after by collectors and command high prices!!!
Just 30 kilos of this tea was produced entirely from early spring 2015 ancient arbor material from Yi Shan Mo village (Yi Wu Mountains).
Hai Lang's Commentary: Yi Shan Mo: This tea is composed of extremely large and plump strips with clearly distinguished leaves and buds and highly visible white fuzz. When brewed, it has a strong and fresh nectar-like fragrance. It enters the mouth with a thick sweetness, and the tea liquor is rich and strong. It feels as if the entire mouth is filled with tea. Overall this is extremely similar to the Tea King cake, but it also adds a certain unique "mountain top charm" that belongs only to Yi Shan Mo. Huigan ("returning sweetness") and salivation are both extremely strong and long-lasting. The flavor lingers for an exceptionally long time. The tea also exhibits profound houyun ("throat charm"). The overall strength and intensity of this tea is slightly higher than that of the Tea King cake, and it possesses a very high level of qi. The experience of this tea is not as intensely stimulating. This realization only arrives after letting out a belch of satisfaction upon finishing the tea. The leaves are plump and thick, blackish green and highly uniform. Overall, this is a very well-produced tea with no obvious flaws.
