2020 Yunnan Sourcing "He Tao Di Village" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Entirely Old Arbor tea from the Spring 2020 Harvest from He Tao Di Village in Jinggu County of Simao. He Tao Di (lit. Walnut Grove) Village is a tiny village (with just 11 households in total) that is located south-east of Jinggu town in a remote roadless area. 2 of the families are engaged in tea production and have been for several generations. The remainder of the villagers tend walnut groves.
The "He Tao Di Village" tea trees range in age from 40 to 200 years old growing at an altitude of about 1650 meters. The trees are pure assamica varietal (大叶种), with leaves that are large and stout, and have a deep olive-green color. This tea will brew up a perfectly balanced thick and pungent brew. Bitter, sweet, umami, honey, brine and orchid essence can be found in this wonderful tea.
