2018 Yunnan Sourcing "Autumn Da Zhong Shan" Old Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake

$76.00 USD

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 (大忠山) 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.
