Big Snow Mountain area of Mengku in Lincang is a high alttude area that's home to many tea gardens. This lovely black tea was processed with care from first flush of Spring 2016 assamica tea leaves picked from 30 to 40 year old plantation bushes growing naturally at an altitude of 1800 meters.
The tea brews up a deep red tea soup, with a lovely floral front-end, and smooth thick sweet after-taste. Thick and viscous tea, complex and interesting, while lasting many infusions makes this a worthwhile newcomer to our offering here at Yunnan Sourcing!
