Description:

Tall and straight forest - Meng Pasha Pasha in the Aini language means tall and straight forest. According to local people, Pusha was settled more than 300 years ago by people from the Jinghong and Damenglong area of Xishuangbanna. At that time this area had no villages or cultivated land within 10 kilometers and was dominated by vast mountains filledwith giant ancient tea trees. The Aini people, through foresight and diligent work,created their home on this land, relying on tea to earn a living.

Pasha Ancient Tea Mountain is located in Menghai county to the Southwest of Gelanghe tea mountain. The highest elevation is 1850 meters, with an average of 1700 meters (the sameas Lao Banzhang mountain). There are currently around 1000 acres of tea under cultivation. One hundred thirty years ago, the current Banzhang settlement was founded by residents of Pasha who moved there to cultivate tea.

Pasha Ancient Tea Mountain is shrouded in fog year-round and features abundant rainfall. The tea producing area lies between 1600 and 1800m elevation and is in an area of luxuriant growth with rich ground cover and fertile soil. Tea treegrowth is extremely productive, with an early budding period and long harvest periods,producing large healthy tea leaves with striking silver tips -- excellent quality tea.

Pasha organic arbor tea is made from selected ancient arbor leaves grown at an elevation of 1700 meters on Pasha Ancient Tea Mountain in Menghai county.
Harvested in early March, this tea is meticuluosly selected by Zhou Bing Liang and is produced under his strict supervision. It features prominent silver needles (in the shape of a full moon)producing a strong, fragrant, bright yellow tea with rich yet mellow flavor and a pleasantly sweet sensation in the mouth. It holds up well to multiple infusions. This an excellent quality tea, well-suited for storing, giving as a gift, or drinking immediately.

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

„The leaves are then dry pan-fried using a large wok in a process called "kill green" (殺青; pinyin: shā qīng), which arrests most enzyme activity in the leaf and prevents full oxidation. After pan-frying, the leaves are rolled, rubbed, and shaped into strands through several steps to lightly bruise the tea and then left to dry in the sun.“
