About 2021 YULIN DingJiaZhai Ancient Tea Tree Pu-erh Raw Tea Cake 150g

This special 2021 YULIN Pu-erh tea origins from Ding Jia Village, Yiwu Mountain area, Xishuangbanna, Yunnan province. As early as the Tang Dynasty, ethnic minorities had already planted large tea gardens in Yiwu. The Ming and Qing Dynasties marked the heyday of Yiwu tea development. Yiwu is not only the homeland of centuries-old tribute tea but also the origin of the Tea Horse Ancient Road. From here, tea leaves embark on a journey, passing through different regions and ethnic groups, and with diverse forms but the same essence, they interpret the rich and colourful history of Pu'er tea.

Among the Yiwu area, Ding Jia Village is considered a very niche Pu-erh tea-producing area whose taste has the obvious unique charm of Yiwu Mountain. In Ding Jia Village, both Yao People and Han people live there. This Pu-erh tea is produced in the Han Village.

Ding Jia Village is also one of the very few ancient villages that still preserve the tradition of vine tea. Vine tea refers to the practice of removing excessive old leaves from the branches after tea leaves are harvested. This method promotes the growth and accumulation of nutrients in tea leaves during spring germination. It is efficient, saving time and effort, and integrating natural factors with ethnic wisdom.

Ding Jia Village stands tall deep in the rainforest of Yiwu, benefiting from its unique natural growth environment. It has an undeniable place in the illustrious history of Pu'er tea. Amidst the renowned ancient Six Famous Tea Mountains, it remains a special presence. Every tea tree and every tea leaf in Yiwu Ding Jia Village deserves to be cherished, and their flavors continue to be passed down through our taste buds.

Appearance & Taste

2021 YULIN DingJiaZhai Ancient Tea Tree Pu-erh Raw Tea Cake 150g

This raw tea cake has a moderately tight and flexible surface, with a lustrous appearance and prominent tea buds and leaves that are plump and tender. The tea leaves are well-arranged, exhibiting uniformity and robustness. The tea soup has a golden yellow colour and crystal-clear clarity. Meanwhile, the ancient tree tea that grows on the ancient mountains for centuries carries a strong forest aroma and the wild charm of the high mountains. Coupled with the abundant substances contained in the vine tea, tea farmers carefully choose the timing of harvesting and processing, carefully balancing the temperature and the essence of the tea leaves, which undoubtedly enriches the flavour of the tea leaves.

The tea exudes a rich aroma of orchids and honey, lingers in the throat for a long time, and has a distinct wild charm. The texture of the tea soup is viscous, the taste is full-bodied, and the mouthfeel is open and satisfying, with a balance of coarse and delicate notes. It creates a mouth-watering, strong, and long-lasting aftertaste.
