From Lincang Tea Company

This 500 grams cake is titled “Treasure of Ancient Trees” and is composed of Wild Arbor tea from Bang Dong village in Lincang precture of Yunnan. Bang Dong Village is a remote area of Lincang bordering Myanmar (about 6km) and to the northwest borders Dehong prefecture. The tea cake is composed entirely from spring 2005 and features some larger leaves pressed onto the surface of the cake. There are two versions of this cake with the exact same wrapper, one with larger leaves pressed onto the face of the cake and another without. The brewed tea has strong cha qi and nutty flavor with a thick and fast arriving “hui gan”. The spent leaves are strong and largely whole. Compression is medium-tight. Producer: Lincang Millenial Tea Tree Co. Vintage: Spring 2005 Production area: Bang Dong Village of Lincang

Finally finishing off my precious last bits of this sample. I liked this cake, and it’s still available on Yunnan Sourcing, but it has recently exceeded my price point.

I like this tea for it’s straw and mushroom, it’s balance of sweet and bitter, and both it’s challenge and easy of brewing. It’s one of those teas that can be seen very differently, dependent entirely on the lens you’re viewing it through on a particular day.

Under the cold, wet early clouds and rain of this March morning, it has those pungent grassy and umami flavors, all wrapped up with tongue-coating texture. I will miss this one.
