Ba Da Shan Green Puerh Cake, Vintage 2006

Price: $140.00


Produced in some of Yunnan province's oldest tea-producing regions and noted for generating an abundant amount of "Cha Qi" (the energy-enriching feeling one experiences after consuming Puerh tea), this Ba Da Shan Green Puerh yields mature apricot-like fruitiness and lush, concentrated flavors. This tea suits those who like big, full-bodied flavors. It is ready to drink now but is also suitable for further aging in either dry or slightly humid environments.

The compressed and large-leaf nature of this green Puerh requires hot water to fully extract its flavors. We recommend using a standard 6 oz. gaiwan (do not pre-warm gaiwan); fill with 3-5 grams of leaves, cover with lid, and steep in near-boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Adjust steeping time, temperature, and quantity of leaves according to your personal preference. A few trials may be needed to find your own "comfort" level. Remember to drain your tea into another vessel to avoid over-steeping.

5 of 5 To drink now or age further April 1, 2017
Reviewer: STL  
I adore this tea. It's still astringent, but mellowed, crisp and clean, a hint of apricot and a great deal of tea goodness. It will no doubt be much more balanced and mellowed in ten years, but I like it so much that I doubt it will last for aging, I think I'll drink it now. Indeed it is full of lovely cha qi, it induces the most balanced mental state. Highly recommended, and deeply enjoyed!
