Baotang is located in the Mengsong region of Menghai. This tea is produced from trees averaging around 300-400 years old. This tea was produced in cooperation with a local friend from Menghai, who stayed in the village for 2 months this Spring, setting up a hand-processing workshop and processing the fresh leaves himself.
The qi is very strong and the liquid is medium-thick in the mouth and throat, inducing saliva. The flavour is clean and fresh with a medium bitterness. There are very slight hints of smoke from the kill-green and slight astringency in the fresh tea, but this should dissipate and evolve over the coming months.
