Perhaps one of the most prized Puerh teas on earth, the name Bing Dao translates in Chinese to “Ice Island”, inspiring thoughts of high altitude and ice covered mountain tops. However, The Bing Dao Village has nothing to do with ice or cold weather. The name Bing Dao is a homophone in the local Dai dialect, meaning a bamboo gated community. The Bing Dao area is small and covered by natural jungles. The large ancient arbor tea trees that grow produce tremendously expansive and exquisite teas. The cup is bright and clear with a light yellowish golden color. With a strikingly seductive softness at the palate, the first sip is often slightly tannic, but quickly changes into a soothing sweetness that lingers long after the first sip. A bit of wild fruit and honey tones soon follow. The great Bing Dao teas are to be explored and learned, so multiple infusions are encouraged. We recommend trying different combinations of amount of leaves, temperatures and steeping times. This great tea is a learning experience each and every time you encounter it.
