From Yunnan Sourcing

Ultra smooth ripe tea created from a wet pile batch composed of teas from Jingmai, Menghai, and Lincang (Mengku). The teas were harvested and processed into mao cha in their own areas and then sent to Menghai town where they were blended together and then wet piled for 42 days in October and November of 2018. We also refer to this tea as “San He Zhai” 三和寨 as it’s a harmonious blend of tea from three distinct regions.

Unlike many large tea factory productions which are an intentional blend of varied leaf grades this is entirely composed of the wet-piled mao cha which was never run through a leaf grading machine.

This is a thick, sweet, and creamy ripe tea, with a dark dense tea soup. The blend of various regions combined with a medium-light degree of wet piling gives this tea a subtle appeal due to it’s unusual complexity and warm cha qi.

250 Grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)

Sweet, creamy, vanilla, cherry cola, some mild herbaciousness, some cocoa. Later steeps have a sweet, somewhat floral quality. Brewed this up grandpa style and was hit with a flavor like classic glazed donut. It’s not the most complex shou, but it’s very satisfying. If this tea sat and brooded a little more, getting a little more heady I wouldn’t mind.
