2016 Chawangpu Bada Laoyu Raw Puerh Cake 400g
Lao Yu (老妪) : old woman
Material for this cake came from a small Bulang village in Bada mountain. This village have very small quantity of tea trees that grow in the forest. Trees are relative old, but farmers cut the branches when trees get too tall. Tea trees are kept at easy-picking height because the tea is picked and made by old women in this village. They follow ancient ways to produce tea. Many of them make tea only for themself.
We selected and bought good maocha from different families. They picked one bud and two leaves. This tea is nice example of old-time puer tea and traditions of Bulang minority.
Taste of this tea is full, strong with bitterness, huigan is fast and sweet. Slightly smoky in the taste, like in 2013 and 2014, owners of 2013 version of Bada Lao Yu will know this slightly smoky taste will go fast out from the taste.
Stone pressed in Manzhuan. .
