Yiwu Yi Shan Mo Arbor Tree Sheng Raw Pu'erh Tea Cake 200g 一扇磨
This tea hails from Yi Shan Mo, which literally translates as "single mill", a tea terrace in the national forest of Yiwu mountain, one of the six historical pu'erh tea mountains of Yunnan province. The forest is right at the border between China and Laos, in a remote area. The locals are of the Yao ethnic group. This tea terrace is within the forest, a part of the national forest that even the tea farmers are not allowed to go in, excepting the harvest season for picking the tea leaves out of the trees. Victoria has traveled far to get this tea, which is rarely found in the pu'erh tea market. This tea was made with great care, both in the leaf selection and its processing. The cake is also double wrapped in food grade paper, optimal for either immediate consumption or long-term storage.
The tea has fragrant and fruity notes, a rare quality in pu'erh tea. One can feel the wild forest aroma, which distinguishes it from other puerh tea. This liquor has a very smooth, sweet, delicate and strong hui gan, with a long-lasting aftertaste, characteristic of a Yiwu mountain puerh tea.
