This was produced by a small tea factory in the Mengku area from Spring 2005 tea leaves from Xiao Hu Sai area of Mengku county in Lincang. The tea was stone pressed and compression is medium to light. The leaves are tippy first pluck of spring and their integrity has been well preserved thanks to the stone compression.
The tea has been stored in Guangdong in a relatively dry storage condition and as such the complexity of the tea has been respectfully transformed. Nice floral, fruit and camphor tones in this thick well aged tea!
** Some wrappers may be bug-bitten with little holes in the paper. There may also be some dust between the wrapper and the cake. Rinse tea once or twice briefly before drinking! If you are squeamish please don't order this tea!
