2019 Min Feng Mountain "Old Tree White Tea Cake"
This is a pure assamica varietal first flush of spring 2019 pluck from 60-120 tea trees growing on Min Feng Mountain in Yong De county of Lincang.
Min Feng Mountain is located Northwest from Yong De town at an altitude of 2100 meters. The tea used for this production grows at about 1700 meters on a steep hillside.
The tea is plucked and then air-dried over a period of several days and then pressed into cakes. White tea made in this minimalist manner is replete with cha qi, flavor, and aroma! The tea soup is has a deep orange-red color with a thick viscous character. The tea takes many many steeps, only very gradually losing it's flavor and body!
