2006 LCGC "003" Jing Mai Mountain Raw Pu-erh tea cake
The Lancang Ancient Tea company of Lancang county of Simao produced this fine cake from early spring 2006 Jing Mai mountain tea at an altitude of 1600 meters (a perfect altitude).
Jingmai mountain is known for having a strong “cha qi” that is rivalled only by Ban Zhang mountain in potency. This cake is no exception and gives the drinker a nice flavor and lingering slippery sweetness in the throat. There is the slighest smoke taste in the first two brewings but dissipates quickly. This is a higher grade blend than the 007 blend. There are more buds present, the brewed liquor is sweeter and a lighter and clearer yellow gold (than the 007 blend).
