Our Bing Dao Sheng Pu-erh Cake (冰岛生饼) is a raw pu-erh cake that comes from Bing Dao (冰岛) Village located high in the mountains not far from Mengku.  The 200 g cakes are hand pressed from leaves picked from ancient arbor trees grown at an altitude over metres. These are fully grown tall tea trees that are 200-300 years old and being of this age are very suitable for producing high quality sheng pu-erh. Cake releases a pleasant fruity aroma. The clear and bright golden liquor has a light fruity aroma. The taste is smooth, with fruity plum and creamy cereal notes. There is already a good amount of sweetness in this tea even though it has not been aged for a long time.

Our Bing Dao Sheng Pu-erh Cake (冰岛生饼) is a raw pu-erh cake that comes from Bing Dao (冰岛) Village located high in the mountains not far from Mengku in Shuangjiang Lahu, Va, Blang and Dai Autonomous County in Lincang, Yunnan Province. The 200 g cakes are hand pressed from leaves picked from ancient arbor trees grown at an altitude over metres. These are fully grown tall tea trees that are 200-300 years old and being of this age are very suitable for producing high quality sheng pu-erh. High altitude and northerly latitude both make the climate in this area cooler, especially at night. The age of the trees and environmental conditions combine to produce a young sheng pu-erh that, irrespective of the age, has complex, smooth flavours and good cha qi. This batch is a production from March 2014.

While most raw pu-erhs would require prolonged storage to develop the flavours, this one can be both stored for longer or enjoyed now thanks to the good quality of the raw material used in these cakes. Unwrapping this Bing Dao Sheng Pu-erh Cake releases a pleasant fruity aroma. The clear and bright golden liquor has a light fruity aroma. The taste is smooth, with fruity plum and creamy cereal notes. There is already a good amount of sweetness in this tea even though it has not been aged for a long time. The aftertaste is lasting, comforting, with just a touch of astringency and dryness that will further diminish with additional storage.
