Bing Dao 2014, matured Pu’er shengcha
USD 81.00 – USD 515.00
Stone-pressed first flush from old trees
Old native tea trees populate the rich forests in Lincang, a revered sub-region in Yunnan. Productions from the most famous mountains here almost always come from inside an area called Mengku. One mountain is Bing Dao, which is in fact the name of a lake 1400 meter above sea level. Mountains surrounding this long stretch of water, enriched by the ecology, yield tea leaves rich in minerals and amino acids. Bing Dao is not famous for floral nor fruitiness, but for the power and length of its “cha qi” — tea energy. Tea Hong’s house matured Bing Dao is a top quality representation of the name at an exceptionally friendly price.
This tea is also available in a small portion as a part of Tea Taster’s Box: Shengcha Pu’er Cha Bings.
Net weight per discus: 357 g (12.6 oz)
Please choose if you’d like a single discus or the whole stack:
Deep, earthy aroma of aged hardwood with a smoky undertone. Hints of raisin, sun-dried chrysanthemum and lotus leaves. Smooth, substantial mouthfeel. Malty, umami with an undertone of steamed millet. Accents of raisin tinkled with minerals and the light bitterness of Chinese almond and chrysanthemum. Hints of mint. Umami aftertaste. Huigan.
Note: This is not a tea for beginners looking for floral aroma or fruitiness in a tea. It is rather a selection for those experienced drinkers who seek depth, body, cha qi, and changes through infusions.
