Bing Dao is one of the most famous ancient tea tree areas, located in the very north of Mengku, Lincang, Yunnan. The history of this tea started at least 500 years ago when the Dai ethnic group started to cultivate tea on this land. Due to its high quality, special character, and sweet taste, this tea was appreciated by the local aristocracy and was drunk during international events. All these aspects made tea from Bing Dao very famous. Nowadays, Bing Dao is one of the most expensive raw materials for sheng pu'er production.
I'm excited to present you these unique 200g cakes, which are made from the leaves of 200-300 years old tea trees. An authentic sheng pu'er with a sweet, deep taste, unique flavour, and great ageing potential. I hope you will enjoy this tea as much as I do. Traditionally stone-pressed, these cakes are easy to disassemble into individual tea leaves. The highest quality spring raw material and the "one bud and two leaves" combination guarantee gentle and, at the same time, deep taste.
The dry tea leaves have honey, plum, and woody aroma. The very intense flavour links to the noble raw material used in this cake. A very sweet marmalade fragrance. The rinsed tea leaves smell even sweeter and more tender. Strong, yet gentle aroma with notes of honey, vanilla, and baked apple. The beautiful light amber colour of the infusion varies depending on infusion time and water temperature.
The taste is sweet with notes of dried fruits, baked sugar, and a little hint of wood. Very noble deep taste with a long-lasting aftertaste with an obvious menthol sensation in the mouth. This tea has the so-called "impact force", a specific sensation of the taste moving from the root of the tongue to its tip. The strength and power of Bing Dao tea are concentrated in the middle of the back surface of the tongue.
Due to its popularity, nowadays, it's highly challenging to find the real Bing Dao sheng pu'er. I'm humbled to give you a chance to try an authentic Bing Dao for a very special price, and I hope that you will love it as much as I do. When drinking this tea, I usually think about how important it is to drink high-quality raw leaf material, where the noble character and gentle taste make you feel good and calm.
