From Yunnan Sourcing

This year we were very lucky to be able to get about 6300 grams of tea from a small grove of wild trees growing near Bang Dong village in Lincang. First flush tea was picked over the period of about 2 weeks. After processing into mao cha and harmonizing (the teas picked on different days are all blended together), the tea leaves were steamed and pressed into just 25 cakes!

The tea brews up a thick full-bodied tea soup that is incredibly complex. Sweet, bitter, lightly floral with umami and the slightest feeling of brine. Steeps many many times! An incredibly balanced tea with strong cha qi!

Net Weight: 250 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)
Harvest time: April 2019
Harvest Area: Bang Dong county, Lincang Prefecture
Total Production amount: 6.3 kilograms (25 cakes)

Had a brain fart this morning and wanted to steep something quick before work this morning and reached into my sample bag and pulled this out and thought, cool 10g sample. I’ll just steep it up. First steep and I knew I made a mistake. This was a tea I should take some time with. Steep 1 was thick and oily with a bit of that dry Lincang astringency. Steep 2 released some orchids. .Steep 3 and I’m like damn, they coulda labeled this as Xigui and I’d have believed it. Steep 4, oversteeped, man this stuff has a wallop. Meantime English IPA comes to mind. Steep 5 floral and bright. Steep 6, crap I need to shower and drive like a maniac to get to work on time. Dump the rest in the thermos with a pinch of lesser quality Bangdong area maocha and grandpa it. Heady qi. Clarity enhancing and euphoric. Wish I had more of this to enjoy i a longer session. I’m sure I’d have gotten a dozen steeps had I had the time. Best 2019 Lincang I’ve had.
