2019 Yunnan Sourcing "Man Gang Gu Shu Bai Cha" White Tea Cake

$32.00 USD

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

A lovely old arbor (古树白茶) white tea cake made from second flush of spring 2019 tea harvested from 80-300 year old tea trees in Man Gang village (Bang Dong, Lincang). 

We have been working closely with a family in Man Gang for several years now and have asked them to help us pick and process a white tea (and a black tea) from their old arbor family tea garden!  The result is a lightly processed and sun-dried white tea that is delicious to drink, sweet and thick, aromatic, and bubbling with cha qi!

This lovely tea was pressed into a 250 gram tea cake with a medium+ level of compression to lock in the aroma and flavors of tea, allowing for a gradual aging over time.  You can store like you would a pu-erh cake (and can be stored alongside raw pu-erh or black tea cakes), or if you prefer it to stay the way it is you can seal it up.  Ideally a clay jar or wooden box with some/minimal air flow would be best!

Net Weight:  250 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)
Harvest time:  May 2019
Harvest Area:  Man Gang village, Bang Dong county, Lincang Prefecture
Total Production amount:  100 kilograms
