2015 Yunnan Sourcing "Zao Qiao Di Village" Wild Arbor Raw Pu-erh tea cake
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh
Zao Qiao Di is a small village south of Jinggu Township in Simao Prefecture. It's a high altitude village (1900 meters) with cool weather year-round and a cold misty spring. There have been tea trees growing here for more than 200 years, and unlike many other villages the majority of the trees are close to that age. Our production is from 100-200+ year old tea trees growing naturally on steep hillsides above the village.
The tea is thick and soupy with a sweet, bitter, and nutty taste. The tea soup is yellow gold. The brewed leaves are olive-green in color. This is the first flush of Spring 2015, picked in the 2nd week of April.
This tea has been tested in a certified laboratory and has passed the MRL limits for pesticide residues as established by the EU Food and Safety commission. For more information about MRL testing and the EU Food and Safety commission click on this link.
