Bingdao has become one of the most famous pu’er growing regions in Yunnan for its unique microclimate that tends to yield cooling lingering aftertaste. This beautiful cake is mainly silver buds and small leaf, loosely compressed for ideal aging. Already cellared for five years, this tea is full of big cooling tingling yun, big minerality and foresty complexity. This is an excellent opportunity to invest in the Bingdao region and see the reward as this continues to deepen with greater complexity over the coming years. It is becoming harder and harder to actually acquire true Bingdao sheng as it is becoming wildly popular (and expensive) in China. Luckily, Wang Yanxin was able to acquire these cakes before the market for Bingdao shot up, and she is passing them on without ‘adjusting’ for market pricing.
