2013 Yunnan Sourcing Autumn Ye Sheng Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake

$6.25

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

Entirely "ye sheng" varietal tea from the highest reaches of the Wu Liang mountains.  Growing above 2000 feet these wild tea bushes range from 50 to 200 years old.  

Quite different from it's spring counter-part which is from a different village. The autumn version is unique, with a smoky robust flavor, some bitterness in the beginning to complement it's complex whiskey-like peat bog aroma and taste.  Ye Sheng varietal continues to amaze me with it's vast range of possible tastes and aromas!

Nice comfortable cha qi with no edge.  Can be infused many times.

Pressed by stone press and wrapped in hand-made paper from Xishuangbanna!

400 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)
