2015 Spring – Bulang Blend Sheng / Raw Puerh

Bordering the western and eastern edges of Xishuangbanna in southern Yunnan are the famous tea mountains of Yiwu and Bulang. Tea from each are defined by unique imagery. Yiwu is called 'The Queen' with a soft, sweet flavor and delicate floral aroma. Bulang is 'The King' with bitter notes and strong tea energy.
