Canton Single Mountain Puerh: Wu Jia Zhai 2012
Canton Single Mountain Puerh: Wu Jia Zhai 2012This production of the Wild Arbor raw puerh tea cake is made entirely of the 2012 first flush leaves from 60 to 80 year old wild tea trees growing at an altitude of 1800 meters above sea level. The leaves are picked from mixed large and small leaf original native varietals that have been growing at high altitudes in Yong De for hundresd of years. Wu Jia Zhai is a small village in the mountains of Yong De county in Lincang and is a neighbour to the better known Mang Fei mountain.
The liquor has a bright, fresh aroma that will age gracefully into a cake with sweet orchid notes within just a few years. The taste is brisk with the lightest astringency that will mellow and develop into an excellent and refined puerh tea.
