2016 Yunnan Sourcing "Autumn Bang Dong Village" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Bang Dong Village (邦东寨) is located in the county Mengku, Lincang prefecture. Bang Dong is a small village situated at an altitude of 1600 meters. Our production is made entirely from the tea picked by one family's small ancestral tea garden. The tea trees have 100-150 years of age and are growing naturally.
Tea from Bang Dong has many of the typical Mengku characterisitics... a high level of aroma, strong and pungent cha qi and kind of flowery aroma. When young this tea is somewhat astringent, with slight bitterness and a thick nutty sweet after-taste.
A total of 60 kilograms in total was produced. We pressed these tea cakes with a stone-press and used low-temperature drying to preserve the integrity of the tea.
