Spring 2015 Bai Ying Shan "Hidden Song" Sheng / Raw Puerh from Crimson Lotus Tea
This tea is all sold out. The 2016 version is available now!
Bai Ying Shan, or White Warbler Mountain, is a remote high altitude tea growing region in Lincang Prefecture. This mountain has more than 10 unique varietals of camellia sinensis. This puerh is a special blend we perfected while we were living with the farmers this year. We blended from a few different varietals with the goal of maximizing flavor, aroma, aftertaste, and energy. We worked with them ourselves to pick and process this puerh. The picking and processing is 100% done by hand. This puerh has been direct sun dried for 2 days.
We chose to call this puerh "Hidden Song". The mountain is named for the white warbler songbird common to the area. The bird is often heard, but rarely seen. This hidden song was the inspiration for the name of this puerh.
This puerh is sweet and vegetal with an aroma of edamame.
