2016 Yunnan Sourcing "Big Snow Mountain" Wild Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea cake

$34.00 USD

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

Entirely wild arbor tea from early spring 2016! The tea leaves for this tea cake were picked from 30 to 60 years old tea trees growing wild in the Da Xue Shan (Big Snow Mountain) area of Mengku.   Big Snow Mountain is a high altitude area that tops out at 2700 meters above sea level.  The tea we used for this production is from an altitude of about 1800 meters on the southwest slope of Big Snow Mountain (west of Mengku town).  Big Snow Mountain of Mengku although having the same name as the Yong De Big Snow Mountain area is in fact not the same and quite distinct.  

Our Big Snow Mountain is not from old trees, but these small naturally growing trees are healthy and grow in a pure and unadulterated environment.  The taste is strong and pungent, astringent and bitter, sweet and floral.  The taste after drinking stays in the mouth and throat for a long time.  The cha qi is surprisingly strong for such a young tea.  If you are looking for a single estate raw pu-erh to age without a hefty price tag then this is an excellent choice!

An incredible value pu-erh which is both worthy to drink now or for the long-term.  Clean and pure!

 

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