Yibang Gushu

For this Pu-erh cake, teamasters Panda and Yang Ming used tea leaves from up to 300 years old tea trees (Gushu) and processed them into 200g cakes. We were especially looking forward to this Pu-erh because we personelly like tea fromYibang. The tea trees in Yibang are very special. The tea leaves of  the Yibang tea trees are noticable smaller in size and some of them turn under certain conditions purple.

Sichuan tea storage

Teamaster Panda was so kind and has left us some bing of this great tea. Since this tea was stored in Sichuan, the home of Panda, the riped very well. Sichuan is not as humid as Xishuangbanna but also not as dry as Kunming. In fact, it’s just the level we prefere.

Who are Tea Masters Panda and Yang Ming?

Teamasters Panda and Yang Ming are good friends and experts when it comes to Pu-erh. Yang Ming is a local tea farmer of Yiwu and descendants from a family with a long tradition in Pu-erh making. Incidentally, our popular Lucky Bee teas are from Yang Ming’s tea fields. Tea Master Panda is originally from Sichuan (hence the name) and came to Yunnan due his passion for Pu-erh tea. In addition to Pu-erh, he is also a Master of calligraphy and has extensive knowledge of Chinese history.

    Ich kann den Tee nur empfehlen. Es ist einer der besten gelagerten Tees die ich bisher probiert habe. Sehr weich und abgerundet und dennoch vollmundig im Geschmack. Die Lagerung in Sichuan scheint perfekt für die Reifung dieses Tees gewesen zu sein, was sich in einem wunderbar ausgewogenen Geschmacksprofil zeigt. Ein Tee, der auch Anfängergeeignet ist.
