From Yunnan Sourcing

Xiang Chun Lin( 香椿林) is a small village with just a few households and is just between Yi Shan Mo and Wan Gong (northeast from Yi Wu town, near the Lao border). The total of this year’s spring harvest for Xiang Chun Lin is around 80 kilograms, of which we were able to get 7 kilograms. This is a large leaf varietal tea and shares a bit more in common with Yi Shan Mo than with Wan Gong, the latter being a mixed varietal leaf (中小叶种).

Harvest Area: Xiang Chun Lin (village), Yi Wu mountain range, Meng La county of Xi Shuang Banna

Pressed with 30kg stone presses by traditional method!

Total Production amount: 35 cakes (7 kilograms)

Net Weight: 200 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)

Harvest time: Late April 2019

The description says it’s between Yishanmo and WanGong but has a bit more in common with Yishanmo. Sort of accurate, however I got more WanGong notes than I expected. The tea definitely has the thick, sweet herbal notes of Yishanmo but has a WanGong attitude. Big evergreen foresty notes although not as in your face as say a Tongqinghe. The qi although milder than a gushu WanGong still is quite potent and stoning. I got a dozen good steeps out of this before a kill steep in the Cha hai and found it’s evolution to be linear, that is it didn’t start sweet and herbal then turn potent and foresty. Both of these components evolved together and finished with a nice woody oily character. Good WanGong tea runs close to $2-3 a gram these days and may not be sweet enough for some Yiwu fans. At $.80some a gram this tea is a great compromise. For me I’m not a big Yishanmo, Walong or Manzhuan drinker as I like more umph. This tea nicely fills the gap.
