Description:

This Zheng Yan tea from Cindy Chen was baked 4 times over charcoal to achieve a medium baking level. Harvested from a single old tree within the Wuyi Scenic Area, this is a rare tea that offers a smokey and peppery dark chocolate flavor with ripe fruits and minerals. The flavor lingers several minutes. It has been aged dry for 3 years.


Steeping:

By the 8oz cup: 1-2 teaspoon of tea (3g), 212F, 3-5 minutes. Gaiwan: Begin steeping for 10 seconds, always at 212F.

Quotes - Oolong


„Then there is the more nuanced problem of what to do with the samples. It’s quite easy to say that sampling widely will give you experience in tea drinking. In practice, however, that’s not so simple. Of course, trying all kinds of teas will most certainly give you experience. However, it is experience on a relatively shallow level. Certain kinds of teas, such as really bad or really good teas, will probably manifest themselves quite readily. Others, however, are not so obvious. It is actually easier to try teas if you, say, cup them, but then it becomes work and the process is not very enjoyable. This is, ultimately, a hobby, and not a job (for me anyway) so taking the fun away like that is basically missing the point.“

Quotes

„Pu'er traditionally begins as a raw product known as "rough" Mao Cha (毛茶) and can be sold in this form or pressed into a number of shapes and sold as "raw" Sheng Cha (生茶). Both of these forms then undergo the complex process of gradual fermentation and maturation with time.“
