From Yunnan Sourcing

Nan Po Zhai is the closest village to Bing Dao village in the county of Mengku. It lies 2km from Bing Dao village in a roadless area filled with centuries old tea trees. Nan Po tea is typically sold as Bing Dao as it’s quite similiar, but not the same. We are happy to offer this incredibly powerful and textured tea from the first flush of Spring 2017.

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

Stone-Pressed in the traditional way

30 kilograms in total produced

Harvest time: April 2017

Even more vegetal – very Green tea like!

I nearly tasted all of the Lincang samples and this buddy here is by far the most similar to green tea. In some ways a fine mix between a very fresh young Sencha (Shincha) and a fresh Taiping Houkui! The vegetal note of artichokes and Brussel sprouts plus a fine citrus peppery touch to it is quite nice but does not indicate much to be a raw Sheng!

Don’t get me wrong – this fine tea is definitely highly enjoyable but in this case I also need to compare it to the other fellows I already tested – and in comparison this one isn’t my absolute favorite! The aftertaste is also a lovely part of its composition and in some way mouthwatering which is normally the case in the beginning as in the echo but this is a very unique and also an enjoyable aspect of this raw fellow. Within this aftertaste you finally can also taste the fruity aspects of pear skin, grape skin all with a bit of fruit pulp to it but more within its skin! There is also a stronger mineral stony aspect to it which feels like if you take fresh spring water and add some river stones to it.
