2017 Yunnan Sourcing "Da Ping Zhang" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Da Ping Zhang 大平掌 village is at 1750 meters and is located east of Jinggu Town at an elevation of 1750 meters. The tea garden where this tea is grown is higher than the village at 1800-1850 meters altitude, making this one of the highest tea gardens in Jinggu.
This tea's character reminds me a bit of Wu Liang. It's strong tasting, with high aroma, creamy body and perfect sweet/bitter balance with little astringency.
