From Yunnan Sourcing

Wu Jia Zhai is small village in Yong De county of Lincang. Wu Jia Zhai is neighbor to Min Feng mountain and not far from Mang Fei and Zhu Peng Zhai. The tea trees from which this production was produced grow at 1900 meters and are between 80-100 years old.

As with teas from this area there is nice balance of bitterness and astringency, but I find this tea much smoother and closer in character to “gu shu”. The tea leaves themselves are dark olive green in color and quite stout. The size of the leaves are not huge but relatively large for first flush of spring Lincang high altitude tea.

One of the highest quality Yong De teas I’ve ever offered and sure to pique the interest of those who appreciate fine raw pu-erh.

400 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)

45 kilograms total production (2 families total first flush harvest)

Received a sample of this with my last YS order.

The leaves are a dark olive brown with plenty of furry white buds. I wasn’t too impressed with the first two steepings, as they were mostly tobacco-ey and bitter. After that, however, the flavor became quite mellow and sweet. The flavors that come to mind here a ginger, almond, and wheat flour. This tea is fairly similar to my 2012 Wuliang Mountain cake, but gives a stronger ‘qi’ feeling which shines on the crown of the head. Very infusible, made about twelve times.

My initial impression was “meh”, but the later steepings were delightful; this is a nice tea.
