2016 Hai Lang Hao "Bu Lang Shan Yuan Cha" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Hai Lang has been making Bu Lang area teas since 2003. This production is entirely first flush of spring 2016 tea from Guang Bie village in the far north of the Bu Lang mountains near the Myanmar-Yunnan border. This particular Guang Bie tea is from two neighbors whose tea trees range from 80 to 140 years old growing naturally.
The taste of the tea is quite different from southern and central Bu Lang, being less bitter, with more sweetness and less harshness. There is definitely a bitterness there, but not overpowering. The hui gan is very special and there is a long lasting taste.
