2018 "Mengku Da Xue Shan" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake

$25.00 USD

Brand: Yin Xiang Tea Factory

Weight: 1 Cake (200 Grams)

A small production from a local producer and friend of ours in Mengku area of Lincang.  The was produced from pesticide-free tea harvested in spring and autumn from 40 to 60 year old tea trees growing in the Da Xue Shan (Big Snow Mountain) area of Mengku.  It was stone-pressed in the traditional manner into small 200 gram cakes.

 

Nice thick-bodied tea with honey sweet and a good deal of bitter and astringent to counter.  Very enjoyable taste and aroma, with a clean and pure feeling in the mouth and throat.

 

200 grams per cake
