2004 Ye Sheng Wild Tea Log - Aged Wild Pu-Erh Tea
These pieces of compressed tea were taken from a 5 KG (11 lb) "log" of tea that measured just over two feet in length with a diameter of about 5 inches. It is comprised of both bud and leaf material from a Ye Sheng (Wild) Tea variety from Dehong in China's Western Yunnan Province. It was picked in the Spring harvest season of 2004 and compressed into these large 5 kg logs in the fall of the same year.
When infused, it yields a clear, yellowish liquor with moderate body and a substantial mouthfeel.The flavor is woody with hints of pine, slightly sweet with hints of squash blossoms or another subtle floral aroma, and an intriguing but mild lemony element in the aftertaste that builds in the mouth after a few infusions.
