2020 Yunnan Sourcing "Huang Shan Gu Shu" Old Arbor Aged Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake

$107.50 USD

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

This is a 2020 pressing from 2013 Spring harvested leaves were picked and processed into mao cha (loose leaf raw pu-erh tea) and then aged for 7 years in Jinggu county of Simao before being pressed in March 2020.  The storage condition in Jinggu was clean with a moderate amount of humidity (wetter than Kunming, but not as wet as Guangdong)  giving the tea a nice rounded aged taste!  

"Huang Shan Gu Shu" (lit. Remote Mountain Old Tree) is a mountain in Jinggu County of Simao where 100-300 year old tea trees are growing.  Huang Shan tea trees are Assamica varietal growing wild without intervention.  Tea is harvested only twice a year, not 4 times a year like in many places.  This gives the tea more strength, body, aroma and cha qi!

Very impressive semi-aged sheng!
