2009 Hai Lang Hao "Ban Zhang Gu Shu" Raw Pu-erh Tea
This years cake is made from first flush of spring material which was harvested from the oldest trees in Xin Ban Zhang village which are between 200 and 400 years old. The picking and processing was over-seen by Hai Lang himself. At each stage he managed the processing to make sure the picking, wilting, kill-green, rolling and sun-drying stages were all done to perfection!
Strong Ban Zhang flavor... moderate bitterness, little/no astringency and fast hui gan! This tea is intense more in its feeling than it's flavor!
All cakes stone-pressed. Just 84 cakes produced in total!
