From Tribute Tea Company

Bada is one of the great regions of top grade, raw Puerh tea. Centuries of deep tea culture permeates an area that contains both ethnic Lahu and Hani people. This potent, yet balanced, leaf is carefully plucked from 50-80 year old trees and then stored in bamboo husks to age. Such vegetal pungency is often preferred and definitely respected by the experienced Puerh sipper. The leaves are excellent for current enjoyment, but they also contain the undeniable components of a great ageing tea.

Its cylindrical shape recalls the incredible history of Puerh tea and its journey along the ancient tea horse road. The leaves are steamed, then pressed, and lastly dried in bamboo husks, which impart a subtle sweetness. Raw puerh’s classic honey aroma is followed by a vegetal bouquet of toasted wheat and a hint of charcoal…

Sourced exclusively for us by the famous explorer and author of The Ancient Tea Horse Road, Jeff Fuchs.

Breaking this one out to try tonight. I am very intrigued by this one as I like Bada’s a bit. This tea is packed cylinder style and I picked off 10 grams to try. The leaf is very nice on this one. It has a nice greenish hay aroma of the dry leaf.
I did a quick rinse in the easy gaiwan to brew this with. Very nice aroma, the green puerh aroma comes through and then an aroma that smells very sweet on this one.
The brew is a nice dark golden color in the cup. The aroma is very nice on this one, makes me want to dive in on it.
The brew is nice. It is very thick, almost syrupy thick. . The bitter is there but it goes sweet very quickly. It has just the slightest touch of the smokiness left , but just the slightest hint. The aroma on the brewed leaf is really fantastic. The aromatics of this one will hit you hard. Makes you want to toss back the whole cup at once. Really impressed by this one.
I have really enjoyed this and been glad got enough to have at a later date. Well done on the tea production and the one who found it.

This should read as “Bada Shan Shengtai”. The site is acting up a bit.
