Product Description

Rui Cao Xiang You Le Zhi Chun "Spring of You Le" ( 攸乐之春 ) 2009 Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake is the second tea cake created under the new Yunnan Sourcing / Rui Cao Xiang label. This label is a co-project between Yunnan Sourcing “Yun Zhi Yuan” (云之源) and a Korean counter-part “Rui Cao Xiang” (瑞草香). During our extensive travels and mao cha tastings in Banna during the Spring of 2009 they came across this exquisite first flush maocha. It is entirely first flush of spring 2009 maocha from 100 to 200 year old trees on You Le Mountain in Xishuangbanna.

You Le Mountain (aka Ji Nuo mountain 基诺山) is situated east of Jing Hong city about halfway between Jing Hong and Yi Wu. The tea was picked and processed entirely by hand by the growers themselves in the the village of Long Pa (龙怕). The tea is tippy and healthy and is covered with downy silver fur. The raw material is almost entirely intact leaf and bud sets and so stone-compression was used to preserve the natural beauty of this tea.

The brew itself is full and round. The very characteristic You Le taste is present, fragrant with some floral notes…sweet and full in the mouth but with a vegetal bitterness present. An excellent single-estate Long Pa tea!
