2022 "Yiwu Guoyoulin" Sheng / Raw Puerh Tea 50g
Yiwu is an incredibly large and diverse growing region. The Chinese government has moved to protect some of the natural resources they have by limiting access to preservation areas. These areas are called "Guoyoulin". A couple times a year locals are allowed to enter the Guoyoulin to pick and process the tea trees that naturally grow there. In 2018 we were able to enter and film the old growth tea gardens in one of Yiwu's Guoyoulin. I'll link to a video below.
This Guoyoulin offering comes from a different garden than last time. The garden is much further north in Tianmen Shan. It's very close to the border with Laos. This is really special material and we hope you get a chance to try some.
This is a very clean and fresh Yiwu experience. The body is silky and smooth. It is juicy with a consistent floral aroma and immediate mouth sweetness. The flavors are layered and worth exploring. There is a noticeable tea energy that comes through clear and refreshing. The crisp nature to this tea that is reminiscent of our Whispering Sunshine offering.
