2006 A-Gu Zhai Wild Arbor Pu-erh tea * Bu Lang Shan
A-Gu Zhai is a small village in a remote area of the Bu Lang Mountain Chain in the county of Menghai. Wild Arbor trees between 200-400 years old are numerous. While A-Gu Zhai is not as well-known as Lao Ban Zhang the tea from this area is nevertheless full of strong cha qi with bitterness but less than Lao Man E and LBZ. The tea is tenaciously infusable and brews evenly across 12-15 infusions. 3 years storage in Jinghong has brought this tea into a pleasant tasting tea full of “yun wei” but not lacking in intensity! A small production of just 300 kilos was produced by an individual tea seller.
