Spring first pick from 500+ years old ancient trees in Bing Dao old village, Lin Cang - the core of ancient tree forest. This batch is compressed into 200 g cakes, then broke into loose 1 oz packs.
Bingdao is one of the top most sought after puerh producing regions today, more so than Lao Ban Zhang in the last few years, for obvious reasons.
These precious leaves are full of L-theanine, which makes the taste super sweet and refreshing, is very relaxing as L-theanine has a calming effect. This batch is very aromatic with no bitterness or astringency. You can't over steep it if you try! Unlike most puerh teas that have harsh penetrating energy, this tea is very strong but easy-going, sure keeps you awake and energized, but in a calming manner. An elegant tea, unlike most puerh! Outstanding quality with refined texture and energy. It is definitely in a league of its own in the puerh genre. Very few teas can rival this one in the massive tea world!
