2022 Yunnan Sourcing "Jiu Tai Po" Old Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Spring harvest tea leaves from 200-300 year old tea trees growing in Jiu Tai Po village in Jinggu county of Simao. Jiu Tai Po or "9 Mesa Village" is a small village with about 1200 inhabitants. Many are involved in tea production. The surrounding hills are covered forest and tea growing, often among larger trees. The elevation is an ideal 1500 meters.
Our Jiu Tai Po village tea cake is a sweet, thick and pungent tea. It's got a grain-like taste, bitterness and floral notes much like a good IPA! The cha qi is noticeable but not overpowering. Can be infused 10+ times without losing power.
Stone-pressed in the traditional manner.
