2004 Biyun Hao Manzhuang Quarter Cake
The earliest teas from Biyun Hao, which motivated us to seek out other teas from this producer, are Mr. Chen’s 2004-2006 productions. In each of these years, he pressed a pair of 400g blended gushu cakes, one from Manzhuan and one from Yiwu. After this period, Biyun Hao expanded to include several single-origin productions, inspired by the material selected for the blended cakes. We plan to carry some more of the blended and single-origin teas going forward, but we felt it would be helpful to make a small number of the remaining 2004 teas available as quarter cakes, making it more affordable to study and enjoy these reference productions.
This 2004 tea is a blend of 60% Manzhuang main village and 40% drawn from Manqian, Xiaomannai, and Walong, among a few other minor additions. It is a blend entirely made from old tree material. Thick and concentrated tea, good sweet aftertaste, strongly warming, with a calm/grounding vibe. A hint of dark woody incense.
A quarter cake of roughly 95g.
