2006 Vintage Ba Da Shan Sheng Puerh Tea Cake
$140.00 — available on subscription
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.
Yunnan, China: With abundant rainfall, mild climate, and fertile land, Yunnan Province has ideal conditions for tea cultivation and is known as the historical birthplace of medicinal teas.
This green Puerh is compressed and features large leaves. As a result, it requires hot water to fully extract its flavors. We recommend using a standard 6 oz. Gaiwan (do not pre-warm the Gaiwan). Fill with 3-5 grams of leaves, cover with lid, and steep in near-boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Drain your tea into another vessel to avoid over-steeping. Always adjust quantity of leaves, infusion time, and water temperature according to your personal preferences.
