2013 Yunnan Sourcing "Mang Fei Mountain" Old Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Entirely old arbor tea from early spring 2013! Tea leaves taken from oldest tea trees (150 to 300 years old) growing on Mang Fei mountain in Yong De county of Lincang. Full and stout one leaf to one bud ratio tea leaves. Mang Fei wild arbor tea has pronounced hairy buds and stout stems. The brewed leaves are a dark olive color.
The brewed tea is strong and full in the mouth with some astringency (as is typical of Lincang teas). The tea soup has a strong heavy aroma and cha qi. The tea can easily be brewed 10 times or more and still give off flavor. Incredibly high quality spring tea, which is strong, potent and very infusable!
