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 late Autumn of 2017.

This tea just keeps getting better each time I have it. Now that I finished my sample, I am going to be thinking about getting a cake.

It seems able to preserve a lot of its fragrance. The taste is pungent with a lot of high notes, but not overwhelmingly floral. The bright and crisp character is complemented by a gin-like bitterness and a heavy sweetness. There is a lot of focus on the aftertaste, which is refreshing even with all the returning honey-like sweetness.
