From Yunnan Sourcing

Entirely Ancient Arbor tea from Autumn (October) 2014 Harvest from Man Zhuan in Yi Wu mountain range. Man Zhuan is one of the six famous tea mountains in Banna and is just north of Yi Wu. This is our fourth production of tea from this area is from the same family as 2011 and 2010! We have selected autumn harvest (谷花茶) wild arbor material from the area of “Man Zhuan” (蛮砖), a higher mountain areas in the Yi Wu mountain. Man Zhuan area teas are known for their special thick aroma and a taste that with age becomes stronger and more textured. This tea comes from wild arbor trees between 200 and 300 years old growing on a sunny south facing slope. When brewing the tea you will notice the tea soup is a bright yellow-gold and clear, the aroma is penetrating and the tea is full in the mouth. The flavor is textured and thick with a strong almost chocolate-like after-taste. This is one of the more smooth and aromatic of the Yi Wu area teas. The brewed leaves are thick and stout with a dark olive-green color, attesting to their wild arbor origin. This tea was compressed in a small tea factory in Yi Wu town where unusually large 40 kilogram stone presses were used. Low temperature (35C) “baking” was used to dry these cakes after the compression process thus preserving their integrity!

I’m surprised that I’m the first to review this amazing tea. I love being the first one to review on here, but I also get a little nervous… No pressure xP

This was such a delicious brew. The cake is lightly compressed maocha of mudded green and gold with silver strands. The dry cake smells of an autumn leaf pile with fresh peaches. The cake pried easily apart, and I also gathered some maocha to brew up. The warmed leaf intoxicated me with scents of dark wood and red fruits. The taste was amazing; although, this wasn’t what I was looking for in my morning brew. The flavor was light and full. The body was a deep wooded flavor with light nectar tones. This brew left my mouth with a creamy sugary chocolate aftertaste. I was looking for a sharper brew, and this was more aromatic. I still really enjoyed this session and the leaves stood up to a great many steepings. The liquor continued to keep a consistent dark clear brass colour. I always enjoy this companies selection and they never disappoint. This was an amazing uplifting gongfu session!
