Bing Dao Sheng Pu-erh is a raw Pu-erh tea 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 leaves are picked from ancient arbor trees grown at an altitude of 2,200-2,300 meters. 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 the 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. The tea is rolled into little balls which compresses and intensifies the flavor. It has 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. It can be brewed multiple times.
