This is a small farmer production using a generic CNNP 中茶 Simplified Character wrapper. This is made entirely from Spring 2002 wild-harvested “Ye Sheng” varietal (Dehongensis) tea harvested in Mengku. The compression is tight and the tea has been aged in Kunming. The tea soup is orange in color and does not seem aged so many years, but the taste is so mellow and sweet, completely lacking the very bitter character that the younger ones have.

It’s a totally unique cake, the cha qi is definitely there but not mean or overbearing. The taste is thick and spicy with no bitterness. Not heavily aged feeling though.
