2017 Yunnan Sourcing "Autumn Bai Hua Di Village" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Bai Hua Di village (Hundred Flower Village) is located in the far west of Jing Gu county of Simao, just near the border of Jinggu County and Mengku County (Lincang) just a few kilometers from the Lancang (Mekong) river. The leaves used for our production come from the oldest tea trees in the area (80-250 years old). The tea was picked in first week of October during the dry cool sunny weather that follows the end of the monsoon season in southern Yunnan.
This is a very strong tea, in terms of aroma, taste and cha qi! Strong thick body, pungent complex mouth-feel, with a full bouquet of floral, nutty, sweet, bitter and astringent qualities. A tea worthy of aging, but thoroughly enjoyable to supplicants of young sheng. The leaves and stems are very burly and attest to their old tree origins.
