I'm very fond of this tea from Pasha mountains. I tasted this tea more than two years ago for the first time when I started to drink puerh teas and it was great experience. I returned to this tea again last year. I bought sample and immediately after I ordered two cakes. The cake is tightly pressed, dry leaves smell fruity and slightly after tobacco. After rinsing the tea starts to smell beautifully after herbs with fruity fragrance. The infusion is also fruity - herbal, pleasantly bitter at first, bitterness fades out with more infusions but the fruity taste prevails. You can prepare 9-10 very good infusions. This tea is very sensitive to a water quality. To enjoy the best tea I am using water heated on the stove Chaozhou. When I use water heated in cattle on the induction stove the taste is flatter and fruity - herbal components are suppressed in the taste. The quality of water and the way it is heated really matters for this tea.

Quotes


„Prickling, Tingling, Numbing
Ancient tea trees are all over 100 years old. Their ability to resist natural problems; diseases and infestations is high. This variety of tea tree has existed in this habitat for thousands of years. These trees are already extremely resilient and the environment in which they are growing has mostly been left in untouched. There is no need for tea farmers to use agro-chemicals. But where any such chemicals have been used it will likely take 7-10 years for the residues to abate sufficiently for the tea to be drinkable.“
