2018 Yunnan Sourcing "Autumn Da Zhong Shan" Old Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh
We are proud to offer an old arbor tea from "Da Zhong Shan" area of Mengku! This tea is picked from high altitude old arbor tea trees (100-200 years old) growing naturally on a steep hillside with good drainage and sun exposure! Cold winter temperatures often well below freezing give these trees a toughness that translates into very aromatic and complex tea!
This tea was entirely processed by hand from start to finish. Hand-frying, rolling done by hand, and of course carefully sun-dried.
Da Zhong Shan is just north of Da Hu Sai village (Mengku, Lincang). The tea is grown just west of the village at an altitude 1950-2100 meters! The location of Da Zhong Shan (大中山) is here!
A complex and full-bodied pu-erh that was carefully crafted to perfection! This is an excellent candidate for further aging!
A total of 20 kilograms in total was produced. We pressed these tea cakes with a stone-press and used low-temperature drying to preserve the integrity of the tea.
