Spring 2023, old tea gardens of Bangwai
A unique terroir, reminding of both Jingmai and Yiwu
Good depth, soft texture and salivation
This tea is mainly about the mouthfeel. The tea soup is active on the gums and leaves a trail of sweetness as it goes down the throat. Pleasant to drink on a hot day, it has a good cooling effect. No bitterness and low astringency. Good endurance.
Bangwai is located halfway between Jingmai and Mengku, in the North of Lancang County.
The place is famous for a single huge tea tree, thought to be 1700 years old. This tree attracts many visitors. Tea gardens of different ages are scattered around the mountains at a high altitude.
The tea has a soft character with a good fragrance. It can remind of Jingmai and Yiwu tea mixed together.
