From Yunnan Sourcing

Ba Wai Village is in Mengku County of Lincang. It’s 1.9 kilometers (as the crow flies) southeast of Bing Dao village in the highlands on the eastern side of the Mengku River. Bing Dao on the western side of the river is at 1550 meters altitude, whereas Bai Wai is at 1800+ meters altitude.

The Ba Wai Village tea garden tea trees where our material comes from are 100-250 years old and grow naturally without human intervention. The trees are typical Mengku large leaf varietal that have grown in this area of Yunnan since ancient times. The leaves are olive green, thick and stout. The brewed tea is thick and sweet with bitterness that fades and transforms into something cooling and lubricating in the mouth and throat.

A total of 34 kilograms in total was produced. We pressed these tea cakes with a stone-press and used low-temperature drying to preserve the integrity of the tea.

Net Weight: 400 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)
Harvest time: April 2016
Harvest Area: Ba Wai village, Mengku county, Lincang Prefecture
Total Production amount: 39 kilograms

I had the pleasure of trying this tea with JC this afternoon, along with several others. The leaves were a nice olive green and had those typical fresh sheng pu notes of fresh sweet grass, light floral, and something almost metallic. Early steeps had a soft texture, but revealed pleasant bittersweet grass and floral notes with some stone fruit and nice cooling effects between each sip. This tea is thick and has good cha qi, both of which along with kuwei and mouthfeel increase with each steep.

This is powerful stuff. Definitely not for someone with a gentle stomach. I am happy I tried this tea, but like many new shengs I think it needs time to settle into its own. Right now, it’s a very typical Mengku tea and not super outstanding yet. I can see its fruiter and cooling aspects shining through after a year or so. Definitely worth getting a sample of before the price goes up.

JC

Agreed! It was good, but it was rough. I think it should air for a few months. We can try the rest of the sample them and see how’s doing. Lots of Cha Qi and fair lasting huigan.
