Description:

This tea is a blend of a few single tree teas from Bangwei and Bulang. These trees stand out from their neighbours as some of the biggest and oldest trees in their gardens.
This is a very special tea. It is composed of a large proportion of buds, from the first flush of Spring. The taste is very pure, thick and with plenty of strength. There is a hint of taste from the wok, perhaps it wasn't cleaned properly between batches during hand-processing, but this should settle over the coming months.
This is sold loose - per gram or in 50g boxes.
This is the first of our 2013 teas to arrive back from Yunnan - the others are coming on the slow boat and should be here early July.

I like maocha so I can closely examine leaves. Some are up to 4cm long, smell fresh and sweet.
Quick flush to open tea and release its fragrance. It is really deep, intense, sweet and floral smell.
Color of infusion is very light. It looks more like green tea. The brew itself does not smell or taste any distinctive. Everything comes after you swallow, then it unfolds floral sweetness in your mouth.
There is more astringency in the second infusion and it is very pleasant. It promotes salivation. After the second cup Hui Gan appears and very gentle energy. There is dryness on the tongue; it is after all a young tea. There is no bitterness at all.
With the third cup the energy started to warm everything. At first I sweat a little bit. Then the energy settled down and got comfortably quiet. I could feel a light tickle on GV 20.
The energy was increasing with further infusions. It mainly warms the upper half of the body, lungs, and head. I'm pretty fired into the sky. It was good to promote Qi Qong exercise, but be careful with tea. It is quite powerful.
The brew itself has rather plain flavor. It taste like a green tea after some brews. All the flavors come after swallowing, distinctive floral sweetness, pleasant astringency and obligatory dryness on the tongue. The next drink flushes all tastes and they returns back again after another swallow. Very powerful tea with pleasant energy.

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Fermentation is a tea production style in which the tea leaves undergo microbial fermentation and oxidation after they are dried and rolled. This process is a Chinese specialty and produces tea known as Hei Cha (黑茶), commonly translated to dark, or black tea (this type of tea is completely different from what in West is known as "black tea", which in China is called "red tea"). “

Quotes

„The Appearance of Tea
The appearance of dry tea leaves is affected by the form, be it loose, cake, brick, bowl and so on, how much sunlight the leaves have absorbed, the production methods, etc.

If the leaves appear dried out, lifeless or impoverished in some way it is an indicator that there has been a problem with the production or storage of the tea.

Also, picking over the leaves, they should look plump, fertile, with an appearance of abundance. The tips should be delicate with distinct hairs on the leaves and a uniformity to the overall appearance. “
