2016 Yunnan Sourcing "Wa Long Village" Yi Wu Old Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea cake
Wa Long village is not far from Man Zhuan village in the Yi Wu mountain area. It's a remote village and the tea we sourced from there is in the mountains about 1.5 hours by 4WD from Wa Long village. A remote natural tea garden on steep mountainside with just a few hundred trees but all more than 100 years old. Many as old as 400 years old. All large leaf varietal. The tea was picked and processed all in early April. Tea from Wa Long is distinctive, with strong thick taste, some bitterness and very long stout leaves and stems. Entire output of Wa Long village area teas for 1st flush is just 400 kilograms, we were able to get a portion of that.
