2020 Bohetang Raw Pu-erh Tea
There are thousands of teas in this world and different teas have different characteristics. Many people love tea, love its light fragrance, even more love the refreshing aftertaste it leaves in the throat and in the mouth, bitter at first, but then turning into sweetness. People who love tea just can't get enough of it. Today I would like to recommend a 2020 raw pu-erh tea, "Bohetang Ancient Tree" raw tea cake. It is the first time that I offer Bohetang tea, only when I'm sure about its source and quality. If you've never had Bohetang tea, you cannot be considered an Yiwu ancient tree tea lover - this is what tea lovers often say when they mention Bohetang. The quality of Yiwu Bohetang ancient tree tea, although its rare, is widely known. Bohetang is a small village surrounded by the primitive forest, a tea area hidden in a small pit between numerous peaks, a piece of sloping land surrounded by large trees, among them many ancient tea trees. Nature's richness and generosity in this small piece of tea land is undeniable. In order to maintain the ecology of the area, Bohetang tea area doesn't have a proper road leading into the mountains where tea is picked. The tea pickers have to switch between different means of transport, but also walk long distance. All the tea is picked by hand. It is basically isolated from the rest of the world and has an ecological environment. The tea cultivation in Bohetang is small in size, extremely old and scattered, with about forty high ancient trees, which are locally known as Class I listed ancient trees. The tea that I share with you today is made from Bohetang Class II ancient tree tea which I personally supervised and controlled. The suppliers are trustworthy and the quality is assured. Because the price of Bohetang tea is really high, I decided to press it into small 200 gram tea cakes. I will pry open the tea cake to give tea lovers a taste of this tea in the form of 7 grams of leaves for one infusion, so curious tea lovers can develop a deeper understanding of Yiwu tea through Bohetang, as the tea from Bohetang is the ultimate embodiment of Yiwu tea's "soft fragrance and soup". The dry tea is dark green and long-stemmed, fat and thick, with a light sweet fragrance of flowers and fruits, refreshing and pleasant. The soup is of bright apricot-yellow colour, with a strong and elegant mouthfeel, the rhythm of the mountains and the wilderness melts into the tea, the taste is balanced and harmonious. The tea soup is lively, the fragrance is contained in the soup. It's a nectar-like fragrance type, yet it is not vulgar. After drinking, a cool feeling of mint appears on the tongue and in the mouth. Yiwu tea is soft with crisp freshness, the sweetness is strong. In short, as it takes the Yiwu tea qualities to the extreme, this 200g small cake may change your perception of Yiwu tea.
