From Yunnan Sourcing

Na Han Village (那罕寨) is located near Bang Dong village in the county Mengku, Lincang prefecture.Bang Dong is a small village situated at an altitude of 1750 meters. Our production is made entirely from the tea picked by one family’s small ancestral tea garden. The tea trees are 150-250 years of age and are growing naturally.

Na Han village area tea is very strong tea both in taste and cha qi. The bitterness is very noticeable, but softens after a few seconds in the mouth giving way to a sweet, vegetal taste and nice cooling and mouth-watering effect. This is very much due to the fact that this tea comes from older trees which convey a subtle but highly profound drinking experience.

A total of 50 kilograms in total was produced. We pressed these tea cakes with a stone-press and used low-temperature drying to preserve the integrity of the tea.

Net Weight: 400 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)
Harvest time: April 2016
Harvest Area: Bang Dong village, Bang Dong county, Lincang Prefecture
Total Production amount: 50 kilograms

This tea has been tested in a 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.

This one has great qi, but more subtle in flavor than I expected. Dried leaf has a floral and sweet grassy scent and when steeped becomes more floral (honeysuckle) with some steamed brussel’s sprouts. Tea soup is clear, pale yellow, and viscous.

It’s quite active in the mouth. Some nice cooling effects going on here, too. I detected whispers (yes, I said whispers!) of honeysuckle, acorn, pine, buttered zucchini, and snap peas. A bit of an ordinary flavor profile, IMO. The best part is how it lingers in the mouth…more than 20 mins! I can see this becoming even more interesting over the years.

I’ve tried a 2016 YS sample from the tea club (don’t know which) that fits this profile to a tee… love the feeling, therefore can’t complain about the lack of flavor

Yeah, I really liked the cooling and body feel of this tea. But having grabbed 2 Han Gu Di cakes, I couldn’t afford any more!
