2011 Yunnan Sourcing "Autumn Ban Po" Raw Pu-erh Tea from Nan Nuo Mountain
Ban Po Lao Zhai is one of many Nan Nuo area villages. It lies just to the south of the Jinghong to Menghai road at an altitude of about 1500 meters. Old tea trees and younger wild arbor tea trees grow on the steep hills surrounding the village. Our production is entirely first flush of Autumn 2011 material from tea trees between 60 and 200 years old. The brewed leaves are stout and deep green in color. The tea brews up a thick golden tea soup with strong pungent aroma and abundant cha qi. If you enjoyed our 2010 Nan Nuo Ya Kou production I think you will find this is a nice contrast to that.
In total just 50 kilograms produced. Stone-Pressed in the traditional method and wrapped in durable hand-made paper.
400 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)
