2006 Jing Long "Yi Wu Mountain" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Brand: Jing Long Yi Wu Tea Factory
Jing Long is a small Yi Wu based producer that has been making tea since 1998. This is a Spring 2006 tea cake that commemorates the Horse Caravan that left Yi Wu and traveled overland all the way to Beijing in 2006!
Pressed in Yi Wu from Yi Wu area tea trees, and then stored in Jinghong until July 2016, this has aged well and gives a gold-orange tea soup when brewed. Smooth, sweet with hints of honey and hay. There is a slight dark chocolate bitterness to it that quicky transforms in the mouth to a viscous and lubricating experience!
If you love Yi Wu tea, but want something aged, mellow but still having complexity then this just might be the tea you've been looking for!
