This Bing Dao Raw Pu'er Tea Brick is made with older and larger tea leaves harvested from ancient arbor tea trees in the Spring of 2018. It produces tea with a very appealing thick body and long-lasting sweetness thanks to the fully matured leaves.
This Bing Dao Sheng Pu'er cake was produced in a small village named Bing Dao, at the foot of the mountains situated in Mengku town, Shuangjiang County, Ling Cang Prefecture. Ling Cang Prefecture is located almost the farthest north of the Pu'er production area. Due to the high latitude, the weather in Ling Cang, especially the temperature at night is cooler than in other areas. Most importantly, Bing Dao Pu'er is grown at altitudes around 2200-2300m. Pu'er from high mountains is generally good in quality. Bing Dao Pu'er rose to fame in recent years because of its exceptional quality with prices even higher than Lao Ban Zhang Pu Erh which is seen as the King of Pu'er Tea.
