2011 Yunnan Sourcing "Cha Qi" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
We are pleased to present a wonderfully unique and enjoyable tea cake we call "Cha Qi". It's a blend of three Bu Lang villages with tea from both spring and autumn 2011 harvests. The tea itself is made from high quality wild arbor (abandoned plantation) and ancient arbor tea leaves. Interestingly these teas before being blended together were fairly bitter, but once brought together the bitterness is less intense. The aroma is subtle but thick and stubborn, the mouth feel is pungent and lubricating, and the Cha Qi is quite strong, but without being overwhelming. You may feel quite tea drunk after drinking several brews of this tea.
This has been blended, pressed by stone and wrapped in hand-made Dai minority paper.
