White Tea Garden Ancient Tree Gushu Sheng Pu'erh Tea Bai Cha Yuan 白茶园
We are thrilled to offer this tea hailing from Bai Cha Yuan, the prestigious tea-producing area of Yiwu Mountains. Yiwu mountain is one of the six historical pu'erh tea mountains of Yunnan province, and produced tribute tea during the Qing dynasty. Bai Cha Yuan is highly regarded for its exceptional high quality and taste, and is one of the most sought-after among pu'erh tea connoisseurs, pushing price higher, year after year. The tea terrace is located in the national forest territory, right at the border between China and Laos, which has the most ecologically growing conditions, giving the tea a pure clean taste of the wilderness, with strong chaqi. The purity and chaqi in the tea gives your body instant warmth and the sensation you have been looking for in pu'erh tea. It is very rare to see Bai Cha Yuan on the market. Victoria has been traveling to this area every year to source this tea and was heavily involved in the production of this tea, from leaf picking to the processing and cake stone pressing. The cake is also double wrapped in food grade paper, optimal for either immediate consumption or long-term storage.
This tea is very aromatic, smooth, and mellow, mouthful feel and yet has strong cha “yun” that brings a unique level of enjoyment, along with its long-lasting aftertaste. Very pure and clean taste. It surely showcases the very essence of the best sheng puerh tea, a truly rare varietal that will expand the horizons of your tea journey. Also ideal for aging, offering a great investment in your tea life.
Traditionally, puerh cakes are stacked together and wrapped in a bamboo skin case called a tong. One tong is composed of 5 individual cakes. To purchase a tong, please contact us directly.
