Description:

Classic Xiaguan green box JiaJi tuocha is replenished!
Xiaguan TF has been producing Jiaji Tuocha since 1951. Earlier used "CNNP"brand, was replaced by "pine crane" trademark in 1991. Paper box Tuocha is superior to paper bag Tuocha in quality. Old green paper box Tuocha has become the most popular product and much sought after. 2003 was a generally good year, full flavor and well-chosen maocha. After 8 years of a good storage, this tea can be very enjoyable to drink now, also can keep for a few more years. The tea produces a pure liquor with a full-bodied flavour and a flowery character that becomes more pronounced with every infusion. The best time to buy is now, the price of 2003 Jiaji rise very quickly in China market and we can not guarantee the same price in the future.

I bought this Tuochu in the spring 2011for $15. The first tasting end up badly. The tea was good, well matured, there was a smell of fruits, but also a lot of bitterness. So I let it be for a year and returned back to it this spring. I do not know if tea has ripened or my tea skills has improved, but this time the tea was really excellent. Beautifully fruity, ripe with minimal bitterness. At least it confirms that tea in my home stock do not suffer, which makes me really happy. I plan to buy at least one more piece for comparison, to see how the tea ripened in China.

Quotes - Pu-erh


„The terms "Xiao shu" (small tree) and "tai di" (terrace plantation) are often interchangeably used, but they should be given separate meanings. "Tai di" connotes high intensity farming, with the entire slope cleared & terraced to plant hedgerows & use of pesticide & fertilizer. But in many gu shu growing villages, there are also new tea plantations which are too young to be called gu shu (ie. less than 100 years old), but they aren't exactly "tai di" either. Many of these plants are growing next to old trees, in a bio-diverse forest clearing, with lots of space around them, not all are sprayed & fertilized. In the future, they will grow into "gu shu", until then we should call them "shen tai xiao shu" (naturally grown small trees)“
