Description:

He he is the last cake from Chawangpu 2013 spring production we offer now.

He He is another Chinese name for two famous Chinese poets and Tao - Chan legendary figures. Han shan (寒山) and Shide (拾得). Hanshan and his sidekick Shide are honored as emanations of the boddhisatva Manjusri and Samantabhadra. They were very famous in China but now they are well know only in Chinese New year and wedding motives like He He. He-He er xian (Chinese: 和合二仙; pinyin: Hé-Hé èr xiān, i.e. "Two immortals [named] Hé and Hé"), also known as the "Immortals of Harmony (和) and Union (合)".

Hanshan and Side are also central motive for our puerh wrappers for this year. The picture is from an old painting of our collection.

Material for this cake is a blend of 2007,2012 and 2013 spring harvest from Yiwu and Menghai area. Originally sourced from ancient arbor and wild arbor tea trees. All materials was processed by hand. Stone compression in Menghai.

This tea is powerfull and oily with sweet return. A little mature flavor and smooth taste make this tea easy to drink. We make this blend for long term storage.

Harmony and Unity

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

The cake poetically named after two Taoist immortal heroes He He, as an analogy to the blend of two known areas of Yiwu and Menghai, greatly fulfilled its analogy of "harmony and unity". The first infusion 20s - very pleasant, sweet smell of steamed leaves. The taste of the first brew is pleasant. There is no bitterness. The infusion is sweet. There is a tingling feeling on the tongue. The empty cup smells like honey. The second infusion - 5s - the taste is balanced, round, full and sweet. There is a fine bitterness in the aftertaste caused by young components of this blend, which is composed of a spring harvests of 2007, 2012 and 2013. The bitterness disappears after the second cup. Interesting is a gently cooling effect - take a long smell of wet leas after the second cup. You can feel a gentle cooling effect on the tongue’s root, highlighting the bitter and sweet aftertaste in the mouth. Cha Qi is strong and started just after the second cup. Tea is nicely balanced - mature component gives the tea a pleasant roundness in the taste. Seller states that it is intended for long-term storage, but tea is definitely good now. For me it is a good price / performance ratio - $17 per 200 grams.

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Pu-erh shape - Tuocha, Bowl, or Nest - A convex knob-shaped tea, its size ranges from 3g to 3 kg or more, with 100g, 250g and 500g being the most common. The name for tuocha is believed to have originated from the round, top-like shape of the pressed tea or from the old tea shipping and trading route of the Tuo River.[16] In ancient times, tuocha cakes may have had holes punched through the center so they could be tied together on a rope for easy transport.“

Quotes

„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.“
