Description:

"Jin Gua Gong Cha" also called "Tuan Cha", is a special kind of compressed puer tea. It looks like pumpkin and the tea will turn to golden yellow after a period of time, so the tea was named "Jin Gua" (Golden Melon). "Gong Cha" means early Jing Gua used to be tribute for royalty.

The tea had been stored in Simao until they were sold to Kunming in 2006. There have been great changes in tea in the past twenty years. The liquor color is like red autumnal leaves (of the maple, etc.), rounded and show the typical characteristics of mature puer tea, tastes wonderfully smooth and cool with strong herbal scent, drinks well now.

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Poor control in fermentation/oxidation process can result in bad ripened pu'er, characterized by badly decomposed leaves and an aroma and texture reminiscent of compost.“

Quotes

„Or perhaps you experiment with different parameters, water, ware, etc. and notice that it performs differently under different circumstances. This type of knowledge is not possible if you only have 25g of a tea. It can really only come with drinking 200, 300, or even 1000g of the same tea.“
