古树春茶 冰岛地界 2017生茶 普洱茶饼（357 g）
The bright liquor has fruity notes of plums and wheat with a lasting aftertaste.
Bing Dao Pu-erh Cake is a raw Pu-erh cake that comes from Bing Dao village located high in the mountains not far from Mengku in Shuangjiang Lahu, Va, Blang, and Dai Autonomous County in Lincang, Yunnan Province. The cakes are pressed from leaves picked from ancient arbor trees grown at an altitude of 2,200-2,300 meters. This batch is a production from March 2017.
The tea cakes are wrapped in paper and simply marked (Bing Dao Old Tree). In this case (Bing Dao) denotes the origin, Bing Dao Village. (Gu Shu) can be translated as ‘old tree’ and refers to old arbor trees. These are fully grown tall tea trees that are 200-300 years old and being of this age are very suitable for producing high-quality sheng pu-erh. High altitude and northerly latitude both make the climate in this area cooler, especially at night. The age of the trees and environmental conditions combine to produce a young sheng pu-erh that, irrespective of age, has complex, smooth flavors, and good cha qi.
While most raw Pu-erh would require prolonged storage to develop the flavors, this one can be both stored for longer or enjoyed now thanks to the good quality of the raw material used in these cakes. Unwrapping this Bing Dao Sheng Pu-erh Cake releases a pleasant fruity aroma. The clear and bright golden liquor has a light fruity aroma. The taste is smooth, with fruity plum and creamy cereal notes. There is already a good amount of sweetness in this tea even though it has not been aged for a long time. The aftertaste is lasting, comforting, with just a touch of astringency and dryness that will further diminish with additional storage.
Suggested brewing parameters are brew at 90-98°C for 2-3 minutes according to your taste, brewing multiple times. For best results, brew Gong Fu style. When brewed Gong Fu style we suggest briefly washing the leaves.
