From Yunnan Sourcing

Entirely wild arbor tea material from 100 to 250 year old tea trees in Yi Bang village (an area of north Yi Wu). Expertly processed by the mother of the Li family in a copper wok by hand. The tea was picked and processed across a period of one week. Tea leaves are stout, with thick stems and olive green appearance. Tea has strong mouthfeel and pungent aroma. Not typically autumn in it’s character. Strong cha qi!

This Yi Bang tea is special in that it is not large leaf varietal but rather a primitive small leaf varietal that has grown in this area for hundreds if not thousands of years. Like other small leaf varietal wild arbor tea trees in Yunnan (Jing Mai), the flavor is lighter and more smooth, but the aroma is pungent and fruity.

This tea was compressed in a small tea factory in Yi Wu town where unusually large 40 kilogam stone presses were used. Low temperature (35C) “baking” was used to dry these cakes after the compression process thus preserving their integrity! In total just 30 kilograms of this tea has been produced. We have delayed sales of this cake for more than 4 weeks to allow the water vapor from pressing to dissipate. Further aging will only improve this wonderful tea!

Just 15 kilos in total produced! (75 cakes in total)
200 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo tong)
