From Yunnan Sourcing

Bang Dong Village (邦东寨) is located in the county Mengku, Lincang prefecture. Bang Dong is a small village situated at an altitude of 1600 meters. Our production is made entirely from the tea picked by one family’s small ancestral tea garden. The tea trees have 100-150 years of age and are growing naturally.

Tea from Bang Dong has many of the typical Mengku characterisitics… a high level of aroma, strong and pungent cha qi and kind of flowery aroma. When young this tea is somewhat astringent, with slight bitterness and a thick nutty sweet after-taste.

A total of 60 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.

The dry leaves’ smell is very vegetal and quite similar to a Baozhong oolong. This somewhat translates to the wet leaf aroma too, which also has some fermentation/alcohol, green pepper, liquorice and bean notes. It’s a fairly sweet smell overall.

The mouthfeel of the liquor is mouth-watering, minty and coating. Later infusions display some astringency in the mouth too.

The taste is a refreshing mix of sweet and vegetal flavour. Early steeps seem to be more vegetal with notes like green pepper, celery, green beans and cabbage. On the other hand, letar steeps tend to have more of fruity sweetness. More specifacally, I could identify pear and honeydew tones. I can see some resemblance with both Chinese green teas and Baozhong oolongs. In the finish, there is a noticeable crisp ale sourness as well. The aftertaste has all the qualities described above supplemented by some nutty flavour.

I drunk it in the evening, and found it to be a really good evening tea. Light, refreshing, mind numbing and not very rushy are some of its qualities that contribute to this observation. It also calmed me down after the day and improved my overall mood.

I really like this one. It’s interesting how different it is from the 2015 version, which was much more heavily floral. I wish I could drink these shengs after work, but my body cannot metabolize the caffeine fast enough before 10pm.

Vegetable with sweet rudiments!

Those very bright yellow colored cups tend to circle more around those vegetable notes as some others did before (out of this Lincang sample sets). But this fellow got one thing in common especially with the He Bian Zhai – no bitterness at all – at least if you don’t infuse it for 1 Minute or more ;) ! Also a very warming fellow with as sweet ling

ering corn syrup echo at the end of every sip. With its Edamame, sweet carrots taste and a hint of chestnuts and sweet potatoes it somehow reminds me a bit of a fresh nice quality mix between a Chinese green like Taiping Houkui and a Japanese Sencha but with the typical Pu-erh refinement to it. But this isn’t just a threesome in fact it is a foursome! Because and this is another aspect in common with the He Bian Zhai you might also discover an atmosphere of TGY or Taiwanese Oolong to it too. Beside those aspects there is also a certain peppery spiciness within its highly enjoyable liquor. Considering its young age this raw buddy is very easy on the stomach! The aftertaste is very long lasting and tend to stick to your palatal and tongue very long and sweet!
