From Six Famous Tea Mountains

2006 Six Famous Tea Mountain “Yi Wu Mountain Millenial Year” Tea Raw
Pure Yi Wu mountain tea taken from ancient tea trees. This cake is special as the raw material is purely Yi Wu old-growth tea trees. The leaves are not rolled during the process and are hand arranged on the face of the cake. This is a premium Pu-erh both in terms of raw material and craftsmanship. The Six Famous Tea Mountain Tea company was established in 2002 by one of Menghai’s former factory managers, Ruan Dian Rong.

Known for its gentle and mild character, I am a fan of most teas from Yiwu (like so many people). This cake is rather dark and mysterious and it holds a special place in my collection. The raw material is from purely Yi Wu old-growth tea trees (reported to be over 1000 years old). The giant whole leaves are clearly hand arranged and wrapped to form the cake – unlike anything I have seen before and when I opened the cake wrapper I was reminded a little of the grapevine wreaths you buy from craft stores.
The cake has a lovely loose compression of large dark leaves and I found a rather pleasing damp yet light aroma of sweetness (perhaps a bit like fresh hay). The wet leaf produces the scent of sweetness mixed with roasted grains and a clear gold tea soup. This is certainly not the most flavorful YiWu tea I have but with a bit of age on them, the leaves produce extremely smooth, sweet and buttery sips with decent cha-qi. This is not a particularly thick tea soup and I have enjoyed eight quite pleasant cups today. There is definitely a dose of caffeine in each cup but the tea leaves me calmed and comforted. I like this one!
