Da Zhong Shan 大中山 (lit. Big Mountain in the Middle) is a high mountain area right on the north-western edge of Jinggu County right near Bang Dong area of Lincang. Da Zhong Mountain has a peak at 2400 meters and is also home to several protected tea trees that are between 500 and 1600 years old. It also has the oldest known "Ye Sheng" varietal tea tree at 440 years of age.
Our Da Zhong Shan tea cakes are pressed from wild growing tea leaves harvested in early spring from 50 to 150 year old tea trees growing at 1800 meters altitude! The high mountain feeling in the tea comes out during brewing, giving the tea an almost oolong-like aroma but with the strength and pungency of a raw pu-erh. It reminds me somewhat of a Dan Cong and a Pu-erh.
