From Yunnan Sourcing

Hong Ni Tang village (lit. Red Mud Pool) is located in the far west of Jinggu not far from Mengku county (Lincang). The tea trees from which this tea has been made range in age from 80-200 years and grow in a steep south-facing hill near the village.

Our Hong Ni Tang production for this year is the first we’ve ever produced from this village. The character of the tea is something in-between Jinggu and Mengku teas. It’s got the cooling character and subtle bitterness that comes and goes quickly (like a Mengku old arbor tea), but it also has a savory mushroom broth taste, with some fruity upfront. The Cha Qi is strong, but both Jinggu and Mengku teas have this character.

A unique tea with a unique provenance. Very enjoyable and suitable for long term aging (or enjoying now).

Stone-pressed in the traditional manner.

Brews up a medium-dark yellow, and has a spicy and honeyed aroma (though not as honeyed as yesterday’s Wuliang) Taste wise it’s also quite comparable to the Wuliang; honey, mineral, grain, but it’s dryer (as in less sweet, not astringent) and has less honey and bitterness, but a thicker body and a more mineral, spicier, woody-er flavor. After a couple of steeps I start to get strong “qi” feelings of calm and mild tingling on the crown of the head.

It’s a nice tea, but for the price I would go with the Wuliang as it’s quite similar and cheaper.

Another one worth the price tag and you are getting very good material. When you put the order for those Bai Ni Shui add a few of these :P

This one is definitely unique and fun to drink. But I am a fan of the 2016 Wuliang. It feels like I’m drinking fragrance!
