2011 Bao He Xiang "Yi Wu Qiu Lan" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
A blend of Autumn 2011 harvested "Da Shu" (big tree) tea leaves from Yi Wu villages including Gao Shan Zhai, Luo Shui Dong, and Ma Hei. After pressing, the tea has been aged in Guangzhou since 2011 where it's been cleanly stored. A very full bodied tea with orchid floral sweetness (兰香), long lasting taste and subtle pleasant cha qi. The brewed leaves attest to their "big tree" origins, full thick stems and burly leaves.
Li Wen Hua is a long time Pu-erh veteran, he's been producing pu-erh for Xinghai Tea Factory (1996-2004) and then later worked for the Menghai Tea Factory as a master tea blender from 2004 to 2008. Several Da Yi brand ripe and raw blends can be credited to Li Wen Hua. In 2011 Li Wen Hua founded the Bao He Xiang 宝和祥 Brand of Pu-erh Tea with a distinct focus on creating high quality blended ripe and raw pu-erhs as well as single mountain blends as well. Bao He Xiang is a relatively small brand with productions ranging from 250 kilograms to 2000 kilograms in total.
