Qu Jiang that rises in Gutai moutain Xinhua County Hunan Province and flows eastward through Fengjia, Tianmen, Changfeng, etc. Fengjia, most of the residents of this place are named Feng, is famous for producing good tea in history. Qu Jiang Bao Pian is one of the famous tea in Tang dynasty, the production of recorded time until the song dynasty, has more than 500 years tribute tea history.

The researcher looked through the ancient books and records, visited folk, finally reinvent the technique, let this ancient process on the verge of extinction can be continued and developed. Taking high mountain tea from Fengjia and Tianmen as raw materials, using the "two steamed two refrigerated cold fermented" new technology to get rid of the oxidized scent.

"Qu Jiang Bao Pian looks like a coin, has iron color and very aromatic." - MaoWenXi, 毛文锡(Tang And Wu-dai). 《茶谱》(Tea Reference Book). It's not bitter or astringent, highly pleasing to the taste. After two years aging, the taste is mellower and more satisfactory.

Tea in the shape of Chinese coin

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

The coin have a diameter of 3cm and a height of about 4mm. Coins are firmly pressed. The whole tea coin will expand during the first steeping and starts slowly releasing red color. Wet leaves smell fruity, I'd say prunes and it is pleasantly sweet. Liquor is nicely colored brown-red after the first minute of brewing, the flavor is very subtle and it leaves pleasant metallic aftertaste in the mouth. Other infusions are noticeably darker. The flavor is stronger, sweet with long-lasting metallic aftertaste on the tongue. There is no trace of earthiness or fermentation. Smooth, pleasant taste. "Qu Jiang Bao Pian looks like a coin, has iron color..." I would personally add to this quote that it also taste after iron :-)

100°C, 1/2 coin per 150ml gaiwan - 60s/30/60/90/120

Quotes - Hei Cha

„The fermented dark tea, Hei Cha (黑茶), is one of the six classes of tea in China, and pu-erh is classified as a dark tea (defined as fermented), something which is resented by some who argue for a separate category for pu-erh tea.“
