Club selection of July 2019 - Ba Ma (Bang Ma) was once a village only accessed by foot, and that time wasn’t long ago. Now it is one of the premiere sources of old tree Nannuo tea. The village is tucked deep within Nannuo and most of the surrounding forests are made up of old and ancient tea trees. Teas from this area have a little more natural sweetness within them than other mountain areas. The leaves of this cake are from old trees harvested this past Spring (2019) from trees at over 1500 metres. The Hani people of the region treasure their Spring harvests, and they are, the most coveted by drinkers and buyers. This is one of our prize offerings this year as we have rarely been able to source enough good leaf from the village of Ba Ma. Discover this Ba Ma Sheng tea even further with Jeff.
Tasting Notes - Fresh top notes that kick slightly because of the freshness of the harvest. It is a tea, that though mild, will continue to open up with wave after wave of flavours. It is a tea too, that if one is into that concept of ‘qi’ or lifeforce/power, will hit the system beautifully. Loaded with force because of the remote and clean source of the leaves and the age of the trees, the Ba Ma is one of our prize offerings for this year. It is a tea that will age well but we encourage taking this tea small serving starting right now, to get some of the range that this village’s teas offer.
