Bing Dao Ancient Tree Raw Pu'erh Tea Dragon Balls
We are now very excited to offer a delicious puerh tea from the famous Bing Dao village. There are five natural villages in the famous greater Bing Dao village area, and this tea is truly a treasure find. When I first sat down at the raw processing facility there, it impressed me with its unbelievable sweet aroma and rock sugar taste filling my mouth. Without hesitation I purchased the whole production and had it made into these beautiful dragon balls. Can you imagine a pu'erh tea that tastes like sugar cane? Well, this definitely is not an ordinary musty-tasting pu'erh, but literally tastes like candy in your mouth. No wonder why pu'erh teas from Bing Dao village are so famous and the most sought after. I can assure you this tea is like the champagne of pu'erh tea.
The ball is hand pressed and hand wrapped. I watched how they did it by hand, and believe me, it is not an easy job! Each ball weighs about 8g, and is meant for a single serving. Brewing the tea is easy, use any utensils you have at hand, either a gaiwan, glass tea pot, or clay teapot, it will quickly become your most beloved pu'erh tea.
