From Yunnan Sourcing

Entirely Ancient Arbor tea from first flush of Spring 2021 Harvest from Ge Deng village (革登) in Yi Wu mountain range. Ge Deng is southwest from Yi Bang town and west-northwest from Yi Wu town. This is our third production from Ge Deng village! Ge Deng area teas are almost exclusively a mixed (small / large) varietal. This tea comes from ancient arbor trees between 200 and 300 years old growing naturally. When brewing the tea you will notice the tea soup is a bright yellow-gold and clear, the aroma is penetrating and the tea is full in the mouth. Being a typical mixed (large and small) leaf varietal makes this is one of the more smooth and aromatic of the Yi Wu area teas. The brewed leaves are thick and stout with a dark olive-green color, attesting to their wild arbor origin. This tea was compressed in a small tea factory in Yi Wu town where unusually large 40 kilogram stone presses were used. Low temperature (35C) “baking” was used to dry these cakes after the compression process thus preserving their integrity!

In total just 3 kilograms of this tea has been produced. We have delayed sales of this cake for more than 4 weeks to allow the water vapor from pressing to dissipate. Further aging will only improve this wonderful tea!

Harvest time: April 2021

Harvest Area: Ge Deng (village), Ge Deng area of the Yi Wu mountain range, Meng La county of Xi Shuang Banna

Just 3 kilos in total produced! (15 cakes)
