Producer: Zi Yu Tea Factory
Vintage: Spring 2006
Compression Date: Spring 2006
Growing Region: Yong De County, Lincang

This visually stunning 500 gram bing cha is composed entirely of wild arbor tea leaves from Yong De County, Yunnan. Yong De is the most remote area of Lincang prefecture, which borders Myanmar (Burma). This is a noteworthy tea producing region due to the fact that a large percentage of the wild arbor tea produced in Yunnan comes from this area and because of its pristine environmental conditions.

The Zi Yu Factory of Yong De county selected premium large leaf wild arbor tea leaves from trees that are well over 100 years old for this product. It was twisted by hand into these stunning braids by skilled local artisans. After drying in the sun, the delicate twists were arranged into this spiraling pattern and compressed in traditional stone molds. The resulting product is as much a work of art as it is a tea for consumption.

When steeped, the resulting liquor is a clear and clean light honey color. It definitely possesses strength of flavor that is typical of wild tea and can be infused many times
