This tea is an excellent example of why we prioritize environment as the top criteria when sourcing puer. This tea comes from outstanding remote land in Mangga, in the Shuangjiang area (Lincang). These trees have been owned for generations by one family, but mostly left untended and abandoned until recently.
The area where this tea comes from has been affectionately labelled “Cobra Land” after many tea pickers have come across cobras while picking. Although cobras can be hazardous to one’s health (especially if bitten), they are a good sign in tea growing areas, as it usually indicates minimal human interference.
While we’re not always fans of the label “wild”, these untended trees exhibit the unique fragrance and “forest character”, for lack of a better term, that wilder teas tend to have. The fragrance is accompanied by a pleasant sweetness that make this tea very refreshing. There is also a noticeable sensation in the body, making this a tea that’s difficult not to be taken by.
Picking period: Pre-April 15
All of our samples for spring 2020 are in dragon ball form. While these balls will perform the same as the cake, they can be slightly trickier to brew. Here’s how we do it:
