Mini cake from Myanmar

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

Kokang is located on west border of Yunnan province, about 150km west from Lincang and about 70km south from Dehong. It is low populated self-administrated zone of Barma with highest point in altitude 2548 m.

The cake is small but thick. Diameter is 7.5cm and width 2cm. There is Chinese character for tea on one side and star on the other. Pressing is quite heavy. Since, I injured my hand trying to break heavy pressed tea brick; I approach such teas with great respect. After a while of careful picking I succeeded to break off a few pieces of broken tea.

There is a light smoky scent in the dry tea. Rinsed leaves smell very fruity after dates and even tropical overripe fruits.

The taste of the first infusion is bold. I was surprised by the intensity of flavours in the first cup. It’s fruity and spicy character. Instant huigan, mouth is filled with sweetness, what is then returning back via nose. You can experience cooling effect while breathing over your mouth. Also you can feel energy just after the first cup.

The second cup – I have to shorten steeping time to 6s. The intensity of scents and taste is rapidly growing.

This tea reminds me with its character Xiaguan Jai Ji Tuo. I mean those better tuochas with fruity taste and without any smokiness (ie 2005 Xiaguan Jia Ji).

It is well produced tea with great energy and outstanding fruity taste. And even more it’s already 10 years old tea for a very good price of $6.50 for 100g (2015). Definitely recommend tasting.

I used too hot water for the first preparation and also longer steeping times. I used about 7g of tea for 100ml. The teas was then strong and too much aromatic. I recommend less tea, about 4g per 100ml, cooler water – 90°C and shorter steeping.

Quotes - Pu-erh


„After ini­tial taste and aroma, the first thing tea drinkers are likely to focus on is known in Chi­nese as 回甘 [huí gān]. In Eng­lish, a near lit­eral trans­la­tion is “Return­ing Sweet­ness,” but we can think of this loosely as after­taste. You can expe­ri­ence this clearly in most good teas, and prob­a­bly already have. In the best teas, though, the taste can go on for hours.“
