Wan Gong White Tea Garden Ancient Tree Gushu Sheng Pu'erh Tea Cake 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. The famous village that produces this tea is called Ding Jia Zhai, which is composed of the Yao ethnic group. Yiwu mountain is one of the six historical pu'erh tea mountains of Yunnan province, and produced a tribute tea during the Qing dynasty. Bai Cha Yuan used to be part of Wan Gong, owned and managed by Ding Jia Zhai village. Due to high demand, it has been singled out by the tea connoisseur community for its dinstinctively higher quality and taste, so it is sold for a higher price. It is a small area in the national forest territory, part of the Wan Gong area, right at the border between China and Laos. The national forest at Bai Cha Yuan and Wan Gong have the most ecologically natural 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 satisfaction. It is regarded as the best puerh tea in Yiwu, along with Gua Feng Zhai king puerh trees and is the most sought-after among puerh tea connoisseurs, pushing prices higher, year after year. It is very rare to see Bai Cha Yuan on the market. We are very fortunate to have been able to source this tea. Victoria 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, and yet has strong cha “yun” that brings a unique level of enjoyment, along with its long-lasting sweet 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.
