From Yunnan Sourcing

Spring 2019 Ba Da mountain material wet piled in summer 2019! Viscous, mild woody taste, sweet dried fruit and some bitterness. The Ba Da mountains (巴达山) are just to the west of Menghai town (on the road to Lancang) and are a classic Menghai region for high quality ripe tea! Menghai Tea Factory sources alot of tea from Ba Da for both their ripe and raw pu-erh tea cakes!

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

Wrapper Designed by David Hunt

Pressed April 20th 2020

What a pleasant surprise! This was a free gift sample packet slipped into my recent order from YS. And it might actually be my favorite tea of the order! Only a couple of years old, but incredibly smooth, without compost or fish flavors, or any defect to my tongue or nose. Very rich, even the first 10 seconds steep rinse was a deep red color. The YS description is right on the mark, and now on my 10th steeping this brew is still thick, rich, and satisfying. I’ve added a full cake to my wish list already, what a value!

Sounds good. How noticeable / obvious is the woody flavor? Thanks!


looseTman, The wood flavor is there, but not in the front. Sometimes wood is the only thing you can taste, but this tea is much richer and more complex. In fact, I’ve now bought two full (250 g) cakes of it. Yummy!


So it’s subtle, not prominent?
“…richer and more complex.” certainly sounds good.
I wonder how it compares to 2018 Yunnan Sourcing Lucy Ripe Pu-erh?


Have you tried the 3 other shou in this series?
