2009 Yunnan Sourcing "Bu Lang Shan Yun" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake

$130.00

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

Bu Lang Shan Yun (布朗山韵 aka Rhyme of Bu Lang Mountain) is the first tea created under the new Yunnan Sourcing / Rui Cao Xiang label.  This label is a co-project between Yunnan Sourcing “Yun Zhi Yuan” (云之源) and our Korean counter-part “Rui Cao Xiang” (瑞草香).  During our extensive travels and mao cha tastings in Banna during the Spring of 2009 we came across this 2006 Autumn mao cha from the village of Man Nong (曼弄寨), near to He Kai (贺开) about 20km north of Ban Zhang (班章).  The tea is entirely wild arbor and features large leaves, sturdy with thick veins.  The tea is typically Bu Lang but has mellowed significantly due to its storage as un-compresssed mao cha in hot and humid Banna.  It brews a deep golden liquor which is thick and soothing with plenty of sweetness but not without some of the at Bu Lang rich texture that stimulates and satisifies!

This tea was compressed in a small tea factory near Jing Hong where stone presses were used.  Low temperature “baking” was used to dry these cakes after the compression process thus preserving their integrity!  In total just 200 kilograms of this tea has been produced
