Description:

nicely balanced bitterness with a breze of sweetness, beautiful honey-fruity aroma, pleasant and pure feeling after swalowing the tea in the mouth, in the second brew there is already the richness and dense texture of the tea soup, already after a few sips a steady aftertaste, or rather taste sits on the tounge with a mounth-drying effect, the cup gives parfume like scents, the next brews are tough and syrupy, condense flavours, I would describe in overall the taste as rounded, softened bitterness with fruity background

this spring hand-pressing of pu-erh cakes was done in a very skilled manufacture in Yiwu, is more tight than previous years, there is more work for me when taking apart the tea leaves for samples, but for long term storage the tight pressing will allow keep longer the aromas, the tea leaves won't dry that much, during this tighter pressing the man standing on the stone press needs twice as much time to have the leaves trample down

Quite bitter

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

The tea was part of Sheng 2013 Blind Tasting Set

The sample is quite compact and firmly pressed. Smell of wet leaves is distinctive, floral after lily. The first infusion is bitter. I am using the colder water for the second infusion. Bitterness is still present, but does not increase. The tea has a full flavor, really robust. Hui Gan is intense. It has a great energy.

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

„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.“
