From Yunnan Sourcing

“Hong He Yuan” 红河源 mark is a made by a now defunct Nan Zhao Tea Factory 南诏茶厂 (not to be confused with Xiaguan’s Nan Zhao sub-label). This is entirely Wei Shan area wild arbor teas pressed from Spring 2005 tea leaves. Wei Shan is south of Dali, West of Nan Jian and just northeast from Feng Qing, a mountainous area with tea growing at 1500-2000 meters.

There’s a smoky, sort of ‘dark’ dimension to the scent of this tea that I don’t usually expect from sheng. The flavour is tart and bitter, with an initially very wet feel, fading to dry astringency. The smoke is there too, an aftertaste in the back of the mouth. The aroma is hay-like. An interesting and unusual tea, although not really to my taste.
