From Yunnan Sourcing

Bai Hua Tan village (百花潭) is in the Yi Wu Mountains near Tong Qing He 铜箐河. The altitude of Bai Hua Tan is about 1700 meters (quite high for Yi Wu). Bai Hua Tan village area is next to a small lake which is at the confluence of three rivers (Tong Qing, Jinguang, and Bulong rivers) and surrounded by steep mountains on all sides (where the tea grows).

The cake we’ve pressed is composed of first flush spring 2020 tea leaves harvested trees ranging in age from 60 to 200 years. The teas range in size and shape and grow naturally without fertilizers or pesticides.

Bai Hua Tan tea is sweet, aromatic and smooth, but full-bodied with long-lasting mouth-feel and friendly cha qi.

250 Grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)

Only 15 Kilograms in total produced

Early April 2020 Harvest.

I am not sure what went wrong, but this is one of a very few of YS sourced teas that I find wholly underwhelming. It’s not bad per se, but at this price one would clearly expect something more than “not bad”. Unfortunately, I only got 10g, so I can’t experiment with it much.

The tea lacks the thick texture, flavour depth and huigan of Yi Wu sheng. It is a pretty grassy one overall, and a tea that might do well with more humid storage compared to other YS sheng. It is not too bitter, but there is a decent amount of abrasive astringency.
