2023 Yunnan Sourcing "Mengku Gu Shu Bai Cha" White Tea Cake
A lovely old arbor (古树白茶) white tea cake made from first flush of spring 2023 tea harvested from old arbor tea trees in Nuo Wu and Ba Wai villages (Mengku, Lincang).
We have been working closely with two families (one in Nuo Wu and one in Ba Wai) for several years now and have asked them to help us pick and process a white tea from their old arbor family tea garden! The result is a lightly processed and sun-dried white tea that is delicious to drink, sweet and thick, aromatic, and bubbling with cha qi!
This lovely tea was pressed into a 357 gram tea cake with a medium+ level of compression to lock in the aroma and flavors of tea, allowing for a gradual aging over time. You can store like you would a pu-erh cake (and can be stored alongside raw pu-erh or black tea cakes), or if you prefer it to stay the way it is you can seal it up. Ideally a clay jar or wooden box with some/minimal air flow would be best!
Our 2023 harvest pressing is much tippier than the 2020 production! Very sweet!
