5.0 star rating 1 Review

Ba Da Mountain First Flush of Spring 2015 tea leaves were picked and processed into mao cha (loose leaf raw pu-erh tea) and then aged for 5 years in Menghai County of Xishuangbanna before being pressed in March 2020. 

The storage condition in Menghai was clean with a moderate amount of humidity (wetter than Kunming, but not as wet as Guangdong)  giving the tea a nice rounded lightly aged taste!  

This is strong tea with bitterness and even more astringency!  The 5 years of aging prior to pressing has taken some of the edge off, and imparted a fruity thick mineral sweetness.  We recommend brewing with short steeps at the beginning to gradually coax out the more subtle aspects of this wonderful tea!
