From Yunnan Sourcing

Our Spring 2017 “Da Hu Sai” production is from the Da Zhong Mountain area. Da Zhong Mountain has the oldest tea trees in the Da Hu Sai area, ranging from 120-200 years in age. It is also the highest altitude area in Da Hu Sai. Steep hillsides with good drainage and sun exposure gives this tea a strong vibrant taste and cha qi. The tea trees are growing naturally, and no pesticides or artificial fertilizers are used!

The Da Hu Sai village tea is strong with fast mouth-watering effect. The taste is thick with both astringent and bitter character that stays in the mouth and is gradually replaced by a sweet syrupy thickness. The mouth feel is strong and stays for a long time after drinking. Da Zhong Mountain tea especially is quite bitter up front with less astringency at the tail-end than most Lincang old arbor pu-erh teas.

It’s Christmas & a lot more!

I am really so amazed about this Lincang sample sets as I am also with this one here. Normally very fresh raw Shengs tend to be very aggressive on the stomach and with a fast bitterness showing up but none of them. All of them and also this fellow here are creamy, sweet, floral, warming and with nearly none bitterness to it (at least if you do not

steep it for 1-2 minutes) ;) – Especially the perfection of those nearly full preserved leaves within this Da Hu Sai are just beautiful and a sensation of its own. The scent of it is very much vegetable like with a spicy peppery aspect to it and a sweet vanilla undertone plus a very subtle floral layer of osmanthus.

Taste-wise it creates its own unique sensation with a very lingering aftertaste which is by the way the strongest part within this act. There is so much sweetness stimulating every aspect from scenting, tasting even to seeing pictures inside your head popping up and showing you fragments of your childhood memories. In my case bakery and Christmas. Like I mentioned the major strong aspect is for sure the aftertaste but this aspects last long – soooo long and even within this phase it is constantly changing. Everything starts with a fruity cocktail of very ripe sweet kiwi with a mix of non sour nectarines and peaches plus a final finish of a touch of honey melon. This construction develops very fast into something confectionery sweet like vanilla crescents but also creamy vanilla ice cream with a subtle tiny hint of strawberry to it.
