Description:

A premium ripe tea composed entirely from 6 and 4 years aged ripe tea from Lincang. Light to medium fermentation spring material from old plantation tea trees gives this tea a strong taste and mouth-feel. Nice huigan and noticeable cha qi! Will develop more texture and nuances with the passing of years.

5 stars 3.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

Rinsed tea smells earthy and nutty. The taste is full, dense right from the beginning (first infusion 15s). Sweet aftertaste is also evident after the first cup.

I used an advantage of winter sun and took a picture of a very dark infusion without artificial lighting. The color is dark brown and red.

The second infusion - only 5s - very dark infusion. The taste is earthy with nutty tones at first. One can observe subtle scratching in the throat. Tea is rubbing a little in the back of mouth.
The scratching recedes in later infusions and the taste is then dominated by sweet nuts. Watch out for over-steeping, there is again this sore throat accompanied by a bitterness.

Tea endurance is excellent. The price is also amazing 380 grams cake for $18.50 what is earning this tea an extra ½ star. Totally 3,5*

4g of tea per 80ml teapot - rinse - 15s/5/7/10/12/15/20/30/60

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Wo Dui - this new process produced a finished product in a manner of months that many thought tasted similar to teas aged naturally for 10–15 years and so this period saw a demand-driven boom in the production of Hei Cha by the artificial ripening method. “
