2021 Yunnan Sourcing "Bingdao 5 Villages" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake
This is a small wet pile batch of teas harvested in Spring 2020 from five villages in the Bingdao area (Mengku County of Lincang). The five villages of Bingdao, Di Jie, Nuo Wu, Ba Wai, and Nan Po are all within a 10 mile or so radius and are known for producing high quality teas that are complex and age well.
Our offering is a blend of mao cha from these five villages that was wet piled in mid-2020 using spring water and done entirely on wood platforms to ensure the high quality raw material was respectfully transformed into a ripe tea that is worthy of its origins.
