This is a Spring 2020 Di Jie Village area old plantation harvest tea. The tea was wet piled during the summer of 2020 and then aged in Mengku until it was pressed in June of 2021.
Di Jie Village is a Mengku area (Lincang) village that produces potent teas that are suitable for long term aging (both ripe and raw). Di Jie is a neighbor to Bingdao, Ba Wai, and Nuo Wu villages.
Our Di Jie ripe is a small batch wet pile, which was carefully overseen by master Li Zi Yan. Only 800 kilograms were produced, of which we were able to obtain 100 kilograms for this pressing!
The tea is rich, thick, with both bitter and fruity sweet notes. It goes many steeps and has a long lasting mouth-feeling and aroma!
357 Grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)
Pressed on June 6th 2021
