2012 Yunnan Sourcing "Mang Fei Mountain" Wild Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake

$60.00 USD

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

Entirely wild arbor tea from early spring 2012! Tea leaves taken from 100-200 year old tea trees growing on Mang Fei mountain in Yong De county of Lincang. Full and stout one leaf to one bud ratio tea leaves. Mang Fei wild arbor tea has pronounced hairy buds and stout stems. The brewed leaves are a dark olive color.

The brewed tea is strong and full in the mouth with some astringency (as is typical of Lincang teas). The tea soup has a strong heavy aroma and cha qi. The tea can easily be brewed 10 times or more and still give off flavor.  Incredibly high quality spring tea, stronger and more potent than the autumn 2010 and 2011 pressings we made.

Each cake is stone-pressed by traditional method and dried with low temperature air drying. 

Each tong of 7 cakes is wrapped in bamboo leaf!
