Da Ye ZhongTea Varietal

This fourteen year old cake from Da Du Gang is a pressing of leaf harvested from wild arbor tea trees without the use of chemicals (or human involvement or maintenance outside of picking). The result is a deep, complex tea that has taken on a smooth sweet flavor with age. Sticky rice and brown sugar give this much of the classic ideal aesthetic in shu pu’er, but with added fruity nuance and cooling undertones.
