2010 Yunnan Sourcing Nan Nuo Ya Kou
This is the second cake released by our own label for the year 2010! It’s composed entirely of first flush of Spring material from the village of Ya Kou in the southern stretch of the Nan Nuo mountain range in the county of Menghai. This tea has been carefully processed by hand at each stage and comes from tea trees ranging in age from 80 years to 250 years of age growing naturally unadulterated by fertilizers or pesticides.
The tea is itself is characteristically Nan Nuo tea with it’s sweet and flowery aroma with a thick taste and protracted feeling in the mouth and throat. More sensitive drinkers may experience a strong “cha qi” sensation in other parts of the body. The tea cake has been stone-pressed to allow for optimum aging in temperate climates and will age gradually over decades with subtle changes occurring all the time. A cake built of high quality material that will bring enjoyment and health to those who drink it for years to come!
