2017 Yunnan Sourcing "Teng Tiao Cha" Wild Arbor Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake

$49.00

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh

Entirely wild arbor tea from early spring 2017! The tea leaves for this tea cake were picked from 20 to 60 years old tea trees growing wild in the Da Xue Shan (Big Snow Mountain) area of Mengku.   Big Snow Mountain is a high altitude area that tops out at 2700 meters above sea level.  The tea we used for this production is from an altitude of about 1800 meters on the southwest slope of Big Snow Mountain (west of Mengku town).  Big Snow Mountain of Mengku although having the same name as the Yong De Big Snow Mountain area is in fact not the same and quite distinct.  

Teng Tiao "藤条茶" is a unique Assamica natural hybrid that grows in Mengku County (Lincang) and Jinggu (Puer/Simao) and has long spindly leaves.  Despite growing in the same general area of Big Snow Mountain in Mengku this tea has a unique look and taste.  Compare with our 2017 Big Snow Mountain production available here.

An incredible value pu-erh which is both worthy to drink now or for the long-term. Clean and pure!

 

Each cake is stone-pressed by traditional method and dried with low temperature air drying.
