2015 Yunnan Sourcing Qing Mei Shan Old Arbor Raw Pu-erh tea

Qing Mei Shan is a remote mountain area in Yong De county of Lincang. The tea trees here are 100-300 years old and have been growing wild for centuries. It’s a very pure tea with buttery thick mouthfeel, pungent floral can sugarcane aroma with an ass-kicking cha qi that betrays it’s wildness.

An amazing tea with strength and balance. Will be enjoyable to drink now and every day into the future.

Early April 2015 Harvest

400 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo tong)

This tea has been tested in certified laboratory and has passed the MRL limits for pesticide residues as established by the EU Food and Safety commission. For more information about MRL testing and the EU Food and Safety commission click on this link.

Hmm, I’m not really sure how to rate this one. It’s my second YS Qing Mei Shan that I’ve tried, and I don’t think the flavor profile is really for me. This one had some sweetness for sure, but they are also quite savory teas, with a lot of mushroomy and nutty flavor to them. It has a lot of strength to it – one of the first teas to make my stomach feel a bit upset when I drank it on a slightly empty stomach.

It’s got a lot of nice aspects to it, including a nice sugar-cane sweet finish in many steeps, along with a creamy, mouth-coating texture. I just don’t really like that heavy savory aspect to it. My sample was also pretty broken up, so I think I got treated to a little bit more astringency than the tea would normally yield.

Sampling shengs can be tricky if the leaves aren’t intact.

This is probably one of my favorite areas, but it is a strong tea so you might want to try slightly aged versions of it. I think there’s a 2013 version and maybe something older if its upsetting your stomach. :)
