2018 Yunnan Sourcing "Xiang Chun Lin" Yi Wu Old Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Xiang Chun Lin( 香椿林) is a small village with just a few households and is just between Yi Shan Mo and Wan Gong (northeast from Yi Wu town, near the Lao border). The total of this year's spring harvest for Xiang Chun Lin is around 80 kilograms, of which we were able to get 10 kilograms. This is a large leaf varietal tea and shares a bit more in common with Yi Shan Mo than with Wan Gong, the latter being a mixed varietal leaf (中小叶种).
