From Yunnan Sourcing

Da Qing Gu Shu (Da Qing Old Tree) is my favorite tea from Spring 2022. It’s made from old tree tea leaves picked from the first flush of Spring. Da Qing village is a remote area located in Jinggu County (Simao) with unadulterated tea trees growing on the nearby hillsides. The leaves for this production are from one family whose trees are the oldest in the area. The age of the trees between 100-300 years old.

The tea is perfectly balanced and is very stable through many infusions. Bitterness, astringency, sweet, spicy and floral all at once with long lasting taste and feeling in the mouth, throat and body long after drinking it.

April 2022 Harvest

Very limited quantity one family production!

357 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)

50kg in total produced.

I hate how since 2015, every description of this tea is copy-pasted, including ’Da Qing Gu Shu (Da Qing Old Tree) is my favorite tea from Spring 20XX. ’. That feels so unpersonal, Scott… I guess it shows how big Yunnan Sourcing has become.

I really like this tea. It feels very lively. There is a lot of freshness and sweetness to the taste, and the mouthfeel has an active, tingling, interesting quality that makes this tea engaging. There is very little astringency and no grassiness. Maybe I would have liked a little more thickness to this tea, but it is still very young and I guess it might acquire more substance with some short-term aging.
