2014 Lincang Old-Growth Dian Hong Cake - Sedona Arizona's Full-Leaf Tea Store
Naturally aged wildBLACK TEAfrom FengQing, Yunnan Province, China. 2014 compressed and shaped like a puer cake/Frisbee called a Bing Cha. Black tea (white and oolong too) can be aged similar to puer, but the aging improvement stops much sooner than puer (6+ years rather 20-30 years). Not as earthy as puer. Break in teaspoon-sized chunks to brew. This is considered similar to Yunnan Gold or Dian Hong. Some natural sweetness on aftertaste, with balanced rich earthy flavor and woodsy tones.
