2020 Yunnan Sourcing "Huang Shan Gu Shu" Old Arbor Aged Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh
This is a 2020 pressing from 2013 Spring harvested leaves were picked and processed into mao cha (loose leaf raw pu-erh tea) and then aged for 7 years in Jinggu county of Simao before being pressed in March 2020. The storage condition in Jinggu was clean with a moderate amount of humidity (wetter than Kunming, but not as wet as Guangdong) giving the tea a nice rounded aged taste!
"Huang Shan Gu Shu" (lit. Remote Mountain Old Tree) is a mountain in Jinggu County of Simao where 100-300 year old tea trees are growing. Huang Shan tea trees are Assamica varietal growing wild without intervention. Tea is harvested only twice a year, not 4 times a year like in many places. This gives the tea more strength, body, aroma and cha qi!
Very impressive semi-aged sheng!
