2017 Yunnan Sourcing "Autumn Huang Shan Gu Shu" Old Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake

$66.00

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

"Huang Shan Gu Shu" (lit. Remote Mountain Old Tree) is a mountain in Jinggu County of Simao where 100-300 year old tea trees are growing.  Huang Shan tea trees are Assamica varietal growing wild without intervention.  Tea is harvested only twice a year, not 4 times a year like in many places.  This gives the tea more strength, body, aroma and cha qi!

The brewed tea is pungent, full-bodied and with layered bitterness and sweetness mingling together.  It can be steeped many time without losing steam.  This tea is certainly good for aging and will be noticeably more delicious and textured as times passes.
