2017 Yunnan Sourcing "You Le" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
You Le Mountain (aka Ji Nuo mountain 基诺山) is situated east of Jing Hong city about halfway between Jing Hong and Yi Wu. The tea was picked and processed entirely by hand by the growers themselves in a protected area (国有林) near the village of Sheng Niu (生牛). The tea is tippy and healthy and is covered with downy silver fur. The raw material is almost entirely intact leaf and bud sets and so stone-compression was used to preserve the natural beauty of this tea.
The brew itself is full and round. The very characteristic You Le taste is present, fragrant with some floral notes… sweet and full in the mouth but with a vegetal bitterness present. An excellent single-estate You Le tea! Just 20 kilograms produced in total!
