This tea was picked from ancient trees that are around 300 years old in Bing Dao. The tea was pressed by Tianming Tea Co. in cooperation with Mengku Bingdao Tea Factory in Menghai.
These cakes have been kept in natural Guangdong storage at Tianming Tea Co. warehouse in Guangzhou since 2022.
This tea has the pleasant characteristic “cooling” effect of sheng from “Ice Island” Bing Dao. This tea has a very good balance of strong cha qi, bitterness, mouthfeel and a very pleasant huigan. Those who have also tried our 2014 Bing Dao cakes from the same factory will know that this tea ages well. It becomes smoother, losing some of its bitterness while still maintaining an excellent balance.
Each cake comes with an authentication sticker with QR Code on the back. Some cakes also feature the signature from the tea master inside the wrapper.
