This has a thick mouthfeel and nice aromas of dried apricots.
A lovely old arbor (古树) black tea cake made from second flush of spring 2019 tea harvested from 80-300 year old tea trees in Man Gang village (Bang Dong, Lincang).
We have been working closely with a family in Man Gang for several years now and have asked them to help us pick and process a black tea (and a white tea) from their old arbor family tea garden! The result is a lightly processed and sun-dried black tea that is delicious to drink, sweet and thick, aromatic, and bubbling with cha qi!
This lovely tea was pressed into a 250 gram tea cake with a medium+ level of compression to lock in the aroma and flavors of tea, allowing for a gradual aging over time. You can store like you would a pu-erh cake (and can be stored alongside raw pu-erh or white tea cake), or if you prefer it to stay the way it is you can seal it up. Ideally a clay jar or wooden box with some/minimal air flow would be best!
Net Weight: 250 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)
