Our new blend is composed of spring and autumn 2012 plantation and wild arbor mao cha from Lincang, Wu Liang and Simao. This is our first attempt at creating blend suitable for long-term aging that is priced affordably. A variety of teas with different characteristics were tirelessly blended together to create a nice balanced tea that has both bitterness and astringency, as well as a nice taste and good cha qi. The brewed tea is a vibrant floral affair, with very slight smoky notes and strong caramel sugarcane aroma and taste.

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